Virginia Gewin covers environmental issues—from food security to acidifying oceans to endangered species—from her perch in Portland, Oregon. Once on track to become a soil microbiologist, Virginia scrapped those plans to pursue her budding interest in science journalism after completing an American Association for the Advancement of Science Mass Media fellowship and an internship at Nature magazine. For the last decade, she has been a freelancer, writing for Nature, Frontiers in Ecology andEnvironment, The Oregonian, Portland Monthly, PLoS Biology, and Consumers Digest.

    If any of the readers of this post are interested in starting a group, they are welcome to contact me. I would like to join a group for science writers that’s similar to this one. I am based in New England, but can stay in touch online as well.
