I have a bit of sad personal news. I learned today that my day job has been cut due to a budget shortfall. As a result, I am back on the job market. I have six years of experience as a health and environment reporter and science writer, and in 2007 I won a AAAS Science Journalism Award. If you like my work and know of any science writing job possibilities or freelance work that I could do from Colorado, please get in touch with me via the email address on my Portfolio page. Alternatively, you can post a comment if you don’t mind a few hundred other people seeing it. : )
Regardless of these circumstances, I plan to keep this blog up and running. Fortuitously, my post “Bombadier Beetles, Bee Purple, and the Sirens of the Night” was selected by Ed Yong as one of his “Science Writing I Would Pay to Read” posts for this April. If you’d like to make a donation to all the science writers (including me) who were featured this month there, you can do so via a paypal button that says “Support Science Writers” at his blog.
Thanks in advance for any help, advice, or moral support. : )
