Fantastic guide to freelance science writing

Whether you’re an aspiring science writer or somebody already established in the field, The Science Writers’ Handbook has something for everyone. The book was put together by a group of US-based freelance science writers and editors, with support from the National Association of Science Writers.

It features articles from 35 leading science writers covering everything from finding story ideas, pitching, statistics, interviewing, crafting stories, ‘multi-lancing’ across different media, dealing with rejection, and the nitty gritty of freelancing. Each chapter is littered with a wealth of useful, illuminating and often funny anecdotes from the frontline of science freelancing. It’s a fantastic and inspiring book, and one I know I’ll be dipping back into on a regular basis.
