Title: Writing for newspapers, magazines, and comics
Authors: Regina Nuzzo - American Statistical Association (United States) [presenting]
Abstract: Some of my experiences writing about statistical concepts for publications such as Nature News, New Scientist, and the New York Times will be highlighted. I will also discuss a recent project in which I teamed up with an award-winning comics artist to do a feature-length comic about statistical issues in forensic science. I will discuss ideas for incorporating lay-language writing into the curriculum, workplace, and professional organizations.
