Dear ASC-List,

We have two member guests today.

Today's first member guest is founder and manager of Writing Clear Science,
a scientist with a background in ecology who now specialises in the
teaching of scientific and academic writing.

Marina is a member of RiAus, Australian Science Communicators, the
Australian Ecological Society, the Australian Medical Writers Association,
and Writers Victoria.

She has a Bachelor of Science and a PhD in Zoology from James Cook
University and has twenty years experience working in a diverse range of
scientific fields including Agriculture, Entomology, Ecology, Botany,
Zoology, Archaeology, Freshwater Ecology, Rainforest Ecology, Forestry and
Farm Forestry. Marina is currently a Visiting Fellow at the University of
New South Wales and regularly travels across Australia to deliver writing

Marina has an exceptionally clear understanding of the link between
thinking and writing and has developed her unique approach of teaching
science writing into the Writing Clear Science Writing Workshops. Marina’s
article “What’s Your Problem? – A practical approach to document design”
(Writing Matters 2012), is based upon a popular workshop exercise that she
developed in 2005. Since then Marina has run over 130 writing workshops.


Marina will be facilitating a professional development worksop at the
national conference in Adelaide in February: How to be an efficient writer.


Join us online today to meet Marina!
