The sad rise and fall of a new science-writing program

Two years ago, Florida Atlantic University asked me to launch a graduate program in science writing. I was delighted to have the opportunity to design a program from scratch and to pass along to students much of what I've learned during the years I've been a science writer.

Sadly, the program came to an end just as it was about to begin, the victim of university politics that had nothing to do with me or with the program.

For more on what happened, see my brief account in the current issue of ScienceWriters, the official publication of the National Association of Science Writers.
