A celebration to launch The Science Writers' Handbook: Everything You Need to Know to Pitch, Publish and Prosper in the Digital Age, edited by Thomas Hayden and Michelle Nijhuis. A thorough, up-to-date guide to the craft, business and culture of science writing for the public, with contributions from more than 30 accomplished science writers, it includes honest, practical advice on all aspects of the science-writing profession, ranging from interviewing sources to negotiating contracts to handling emotional hurdles such as rejection and envy. Carl Zimmer calls it "a wonderful cheat sheet for the profession." Published by Da Capo Press, April 2013.
