Council for the Advancement of Science Writing: Showcase

Aspiring science writers and fans of science journalism may be interested in this resource from the non-profit Council for the Advancement of Science Writing (CASW). Launched in July 2016, Showcase "highlights award-winning science journalism" and aims to "celebrate excellence, honor and amplify the work of awards programs, and--most important--offer inspiration and insight to aspiring and early-career science writers." In addition to viewing the stories featured on the Showcase home page, visitors can browse its Stories section to find numerous exemplary pieces organized by disciplines such as planetary science, mathematics, and medicine. Readers should be sure to check out the Storygrams category, which features "professional annotations of great stories to highlight how writers have tackled the challenges of covering science," published in collaboration with The Open Notebook (see the 8-12-2016 Scout Report). Showcase also provides a Resources section with a well-organized list of helpful links for up-and-coming science writers, as well as short profiles of the Writers whose work Showcase features and an overview of the science writing Awards from which the highlighted stories are selected.
