As particle physicists, we spend our days studying the elemental building blocks from which our entire vast and varied universe is constructed. We probe the individual particles, and examine the ways in which they interact with and influence each other. The knowledge we glean about these invisible subatomic constituents has deep implications for our understanding of familiar every day objects and phenomena.

In this workshop, we will take a similar approach to science writing. We will look closely at various passages, culled from a range of sources, and attempt to deconstruct them. We will try to identify the components that make up effective science writing, study them individually, and examine how they interact. Through discussions, and a series of exercises, we will learn how to use some of these elements to enliven our own writing - be it long or short, blog or book.

This workshop is open to everyone at CERN. Remote connection will be possible.
