Environmental Writing Opportunity

The University of Washington Puget Sound Institute in collaboration with the Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference is looking for science writers to contribute to a series of proceedings summarizing important conference sessions and presentations. Students or professional science writers are encouraged to send a resume (or short biosketch) and a writing sample to me at: jeffrice@uw.edu. I will then forward these to the Encyclopedia of Puget Sound editorial board for review: http://www.eopugetsound.org/content/editorial-board. Interested parties can also call me with any questions: 206-369-1007.
Writers will work under the guidance of the editorial board or other experts to document and describe important threads and subjects presented at the conference, e.g. “the latest research on eel grass and what it means for ecosystem recovery.” These articles will be more informal and journalistic than peer-reviewed reports, but aren’t necessarily news articles or narratives. Closer to Science magazine than the Seattle Times. Articles will be approximately 1000 words and will place the information in the context of Salish Sea recovery. Writers will attend the conference from April 30-May 2nd and will receive free registration and meals. Articles will appear on the Encyclopedia of Puget Sound: eopugetsound.org.
For more information about the conference, visit: http://www.wwu.edu/salishseaconference/
We have a few spots still available and hope to chose all the writers by April 16th. Thank you for forwarding this to any interested parties.
