A Smiley Starryeyes Find out the answers as you delve into two extremes of science communication storytelling; social media and academic publishing. Drawing on the experiences of researchers, journalists, and museum professionals, this workshop will focus on taking back control of the stories we tell through museums, mass media, and social media. As well as sharing best practice guidelines for social media, this workshop will demonstrate a new handbook to help museum professionals take their first steps into academic writing. These outputs come from a two-year science communication research project called QUEST, investigating the issues faced by those working in research, journalism, social media and the museum sector..
