The Open Notebook

I’m co-founder (with my colleague Jeanne Erdmann) and editor-in-chief of The Open Notebook, a non-profit publication dedicated to helping science journalists improve their skills. The Open Notebook, founded in 2010, interviews outstanding journalists to tell the story behind the best science stories; publishes reported features on various aspects of science journalism craft; annotates award-winning stories to reveal what makes them successful; offers a large database of successful query letters; publishes a craft-focused advice column; and produces a variety of series that shine a light onto the working lives and habits of science journalists.
