HELIX magazine is now recruiting scientist-writers for the 2017–18 academic year.
HELIX is both an online magazine and a training program to support skills development for early-career scientists. With support from our professional editorial staff, Northwestern faculty, students and staff author the magazine’s articles and blog posts. Their writing sheds light on the incredible research being conducted at Northwestern and throughout the world.
The magazine provides a platform for scientists and researchers to hone their writing and storytelling skills. Many of our contributors are graduate students, but undergraduates, postdocs, and research faculty and staff are welcome too. All contributors receive one-on-one guidance in writing for the public over multiple drafts, culminating in an article or blog post published online.
HELIX Editor Sara Grady is hosting a couple of information sessions this fall. She’ll share more about the magazine, writing process, and editorial support and coaching.
Information session details:
Monday, September 25 at 1:00pm
Searle conference room in Lurie, Chicago Campus
Friday, September 29 at 12:00pm
TGS Commons, Evanston Campus
