The Xylom

We Grow Science with Words


The Xylom is a nonprofit, student-led newsroom exploring the communities influencing and shaped by science.

About our journalism

We produce original personal essays, longform science features, and resources for early-career science professionals, in addition to a newsletter curating the best science stories, to understand three questions :
1. ​”How can science look more like us?”
2. ​”How are scientists shaped by what happens outside of the lab?”
3. ​”How do people respond to the changing world through science?”

We pride in:
• Our diverse contributors (>2/3 women/ non-binary; >2/3 people of color),
• Our expertise in multimedia and data storytelling, and
• Our capacity for multicultural content (25 countries and regions, six languages and counting).
