Creative Science Writing

Organisers: Buzz Baum, Enrico Coen, Mark Miodownik and Jennifer Rohn

Date: 26 - 29 June 2022

Location: Wiston House, West Sussex, UK

Are you thinking about writing a popular book or essay to share your scientific passions, would you like advice on how to realise your dream, and would you like to meet others on the same journey? If so, this Workshop is for you.

This Creative Science Writing Workshop aims to nurture new voices in science writing (popular science, social implications of science, science-related fiction, or other forms of creative writing) by bringing aspiring writers, established authors and agents together to exchange approaches and ideas.

The Workshop has a strong practical element, with free writing periods, informal discussions, and sessions in which the group will consider writing by each of the participants in turn and give constructive feedback.

About Wiston House

Wiston House

The Workshop will be held at the beautiful Wiston House, which is a 16th century Grade I listed building located at the foot of the South Downs in West Sussex. The house is surrounded by over 6,000 acres of parkland with magnificent views from the mile-long drive.

Wiston House is the home of Wilton Park, one of the world’s leading centres for the discussion of key international policy issues. Wilton Park was created in 1946 to help re-establish peace and democracy in Europe as part of an initiative inspired by Winston Churchill. Wiston House has an amazing history and appears in the Domesday Book, the register of English possessions made by William the Conqueror in 1086, 20 years after he won the Battle of Hastings.

Wiston House is 32 miles from Gatwick Airport and 60 miles from Heathrow Airport. The nearest train station is Shoreham-by-Sea, which is a 20 minute taxi ride from Wiston House and takes 1 hour 10 minutes from London Victoria.
