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)

Inviting all writers, reporters, freelancers, producers, bloggers, authors, PR people, public information officers, other communicators, and students exploring career options in science communication to a casual, no-host happy hour as we kick off a new era for the San Diego Science Writers Association (SANDSWA).
