The ability to communicate your research to diverse audiences takes practice. In this workshop you will learn how to tell the story of what you do and why it is important in a supportive and playful environment. Guided exercises will move you toward the goal of clear and cohesive lay statements for future fellowship or grant applications.
Please bring 3 copies of a brief lay statement (less than 500 words) from a previous fellowship submission or one you are writing for a new application or manuscript.
