At the beginning of the year, we launched this blog as a virtual water cooler for science writers. We have showed you our home offices and favorite coffee shops. We’ve explained how we set goals, stay solvent, and gain skills, and how we fight frustration and bad contracts. Each post is a quick peek and follow-on from the advice we offer in our book, The Science Writers’ Handbook: Everything You Need to Know to Pitch, Publish and Prosper in the Digital Age.
Now, at the middle of the year, we’ve reached post number 100–and we’re celebrating by showing off our top 5 posts.
- Reader Question: Why won’t an editor reply to my pitch?
- Six essentials for ultralight field reporting.
- Virtual mentoring: Don’t miss the boat. (You can watch the second virtual mentoring session, if you missed it, and we’re planning another one in early July.)
- Besting bad contracts.
- Hold the exclamation points! And other tips on writing for kids.
Here’s to the next 100 posts!
