Thrill to the tale of a science writer teetering on the work-life balance beam!
Marvel at the story of survival of a freelancer who thought a moving trip/working vacation was a good idea!
Gasp in wonderment at an editor who emerged mostly unscathed after editing the words of more than a dozen colleagues, and an author who lived to tell the saga about publishing her own book.
Whoever said science writing isn’t exciting?
Join us in the Emerald City on June 12 at 7:30 p.m., when the Northwest Science Writers Association hosts four contributors to The Science Writers’ Handbook (Da Capo, 2013): Virginia Gewin (bio), Emma Marris (bio), Bryn Nelson (bio), and Michelle Nijhuis (bio).
Hoping to launch your own writing career? Looking for some tips to help you achieve the right work-life balance, avoid domestic disasters at home or deal with professional jealousy? Just want to hear how nearly three dozen science geeks managed to pull off the book? Come join us! We’ll be sharing our stories from the field and offering some lessons learned for maintaining your sanity and your solvency, live in the first-floor meeting room of the University House at 4400 Stone Way North in Seattle.
The event is free for NSWA members, and only $5 for non-members. You can RSVP for the event by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. And right after the event, you can purchase your own copy of The Science Writers’ Handbook: Everything You Need to Know to Pitch, Publish, and Prosper in the Digital Age, for only $15 (cash or check only, please) and have it signed by the co-authors.
