Elizabeth Wason talks about science writing and her work as managing editor for Resources for the Future, a DC think tank. We talk about getting accessible expert insight and research in front of policymakers. We also talk about writing through editing, about “getting out of the way” in collaboration, and about creating visually compelling composition.
