This blog is currently on hiatus owing to work commitments. Whilst I still keep an eye on the goings on at RiAus, and contribute to the work of the good folks at eLife, little will be added to this blog for the foreseeable future. Simon Says remains open for business, albeit at a reduced capacity. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope the archive of content found here will prove to be of interest.

These thoughts come from a conversation had today between a number of students, scientists and public engagement aficionados on Twitter, and from it I suggested to one of our undergraduate students that he ought to put pen to paper, or finger to keyboard, and just write. It is only then that you truly appreciate what certain audiences know, and what makes good communication.
As the idea developed, it became something worthy of a bigger challenge, to which I now invite you to participate. This is open to all who have an interest in science writing and communication, but particularly those who have never tried before.
Don’t worry if you don’t know what you’re doing, that’s precisely why you should join in!
