Council for the Advancement of Science Writing

New edition of science writing career guide now available

Prompted by the enormous changes that continue to ripple through and transform the media landscape, CASW has produced and posted a thoroughly new and timely edition of its highly popular primer for aspiring science writers, “A Guide to Careers in Science Writing.”
The updated rendition deals with the new realities and challenges confronting anyone wishing to become a professional science communicator and provides practical counsel about how best to achieve that goal and identifies job prospects and opportunities in this post-digital age.  Among the highlights is a section on salary expectations, based on a newly completed survey of print, broadcast and digital journalists as well as public information officers. The complete guide is available here.
