Freelance science writer and editor, Kendall Powell covers the realm of biology, from molecules to maternity. She jumped from the lab bench to laptop via the UC, Santa Cruz Science Communication program in 2002. She has written news stories, features and scientist profiles for a variety of publications including the Los Angeles Times, Nature (including Nature Careers), PLoS Biology, Journal of Cell Biology, Science Careers and the HHMI Bulletin. In 2005, Kendall founded SciLance as a way to stay connected to a vibrant community of writers who are as much word nerds as science geeks. She lives near Denver, Colorado with her scientist husband, daughter, son, and two Labradors.

    Seeing the photo of the tribe makes me 1) all the more sad I didn’t attend the conference, and 2) all the more grateful for being part of the SciLance community. Thanks for your inspiration and leadership, Kendall!

      Thanks Susan! I think, now more than ever before, writer tribes need to foster collegiality, remembering as Michelle Nijhuis puts it that, rather than competition, other writers are our greatest allies!
