About Us

About The Pipettepen

The Science Writing and Communication Club (SWAC) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was formed to foster the intellectual and professional development of aspiring science writers and communicators at all levels of graduate and postdoctoral training. Our goal is to provide club members with career exposure, writing experience, and training opportunities in science writing and communication.

We work together as a club to publish science themed articles on our blog, The Pipettepen, and post-graduate school career articles on the TIBBS Career Blog. Additionally, we host a Seminar Series each spring with invited experts in various areas of science writing and communication.

If you would like to be a part of our club, attend some seminars, contribute an article to our blog, or if you have any questions, please contact us!
