Science Communication Through Poetry
  Science Communication Through Poetry aims to explore how we might communicate science effectively both to and with non-scientific audiences across the spectrum of science communication, from dissemination to dialogue, via the medium of poetry. It has been written for scientists, science communicators, public engagement practitioners, and poets, so that they can learn how to use poetry as an effective tool through which to diversify science. As well as containing specific advice and guidance for how to use poetry to communicate science with different audiences, this book contains a number of exercises for the reader to reflect on what has been learnt and to put into practice what is discussed. Further study and additional readings are also provided to help improve knowledge, understanding, and familiarity with both poetry and science communication.
