Chiuz Storylab

To present one's own research topic or project is a skill that has to be learned.

In a one-day workshop, the "Chiuz Storylab", editors teach students and chemists how complex issues can be treated in an understandable manner for the general public. Participants learn rules for good writing and storytelling. This includes the art of giving a story a leitmotif, using lively language which attracts readers, and finding appropriate images and comparisons.

Doris Fischer-Henningsen (editor of Chemie in Unserer Zeit (Chiuz)), Uta Bilow (curator), also known for her articles in the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), and writers such as Klaus Roth started the ChiuZ-Storylab in March 2015 in Münster, Germany, at the Young Chemists Forum of the GDCh (German Chemical Society). The second workshop was held at the GDCh's biannual meeting Wissenschaftsforum in Dresden, Germany, in September 2015. And a third was held at the Spring Symposium of the JungChemikerForum (JCF, Young Chemists’ Forum) of the GDCh in Kiel, Germany, on March 16, 2016.
