  • Introduction

    Intersecting Science, Literature, and the Arts—not to be mistaken with science fiction—would encompass the collaboration of creative writing and art with scientific fact to accomplish a variety of goals such as communicating science news and discoveries for a general audience, unraveling why or how something occurred within a piece of literature, and to promote social change and scientific awareness through a creative but informative outlet.
    Aims and Scope:
    1. Enhance creative forms with scientific facts
    2. Debunking
    3. Promote social and scientific awareness
    4. Inspire political action
    5. Explain literary works through a scientific lens
    6. Intersecting disciplines
