Dr. Rebecca Fein

At Wild Ink Publishing Dr. Rebecca teaches Technical Writing, something she has done for more than 20 years as part of her academic and scientific career journeys. She’s excited to be here and to share her love of writing with students.

Dr. Rebecca helps curious individuals understand science and how to use it in their everyday lives and communicate it to the world. She serves students and emerging professionals by helping them unveil and embrace the scientist within. Embracing the scientist within allows individuals to improve their critical thinking, parse fact from fiction, face fears with facts and figures, and enjoy their lives knowing that they do not have to be afraid because someone told them to be because they understand how to communicate the science.

This course is designed for writers who are looking to learn what technical writing is and how to incorporate it into their work. The course is designed for high school, college, grad, or adults looking to get their feet wet in technical writing.
