How to be a Science Writer



Sometimes paths and purposes cross and good things happen. Internationally-read science writer Kendall Powell was on campus in Rochester today to speak to Mayo Graduate School students on the prospects for writing about science as a career. Kendall has written for a variety of outlets, including the journal Nature. She is one of the authors of the Science Writer's Handbook, due out next week from the National Association of Science Writers. As a freelance journalist, Kendall is part of this growing sector of professionals that aren't part of a publication's staff but still provide an increasing percentage of the news on the pages. She is shown here with Bruce Horazdovsky, Ph.D., associate dean of the Graduate School, who hosted her talk.
