Welcome! The San Diego Science Writers Association (SANDSWA) is a growing group of writers, including staff journalists, freelance journalists, public information officers, students and other science communicators in the region.

We’re just coming back to life after several years of dormancy, and we’re planning our first general get-together on July 11, 2018 at the Farmer and the Seahorse. Come and join us!

Find out more about us, upcoming events, and how to become a member in the other pages of this website. (some areas still under construction)

Tour and Tasting at White Labs

White Labs knows yeast, and we’re going to drop in, learn about their work and quaff a beer or two. You’ll still get the great SANDSWA camaraderie you know and love, plus more science.
