Join author and faculty member Jamie Zvirzdin for an interactive session as she discusses her new book, Subatomic Writing.

Jamie invites attendees to bring one favorite science-related sentence to examine during the hour. We’ll look at how the sentence works at the fundamental levels and what editors see when they look at a submission.
