Science Writer for Hire

Science Writer for Hire is a venue for bringing together freelance science writers with editors and others who are looking to hire writers. Born as the Unoffical Pop-Up Pitch Slam at the World Conference of Science Journalists 2017 in San Francisco, Sarah and co-organizer Bethany Brookshire have now hosted the event four more times, at ScienceWriters 2018 in Washington, D.C., Science Writers 2019 in State College, Pennsylvania, the World Conference of Science Journalists 2019 in Lausanne, Switzerland, and virtually at ScienceWriters 2020. The event aims to make meetings between editors and writers easier–in part by making the editors wear funny hats.
