Hi I, Science writers!

The theme for the upcoming 42th issue of our magazine (2019) will be ENERGY!  We have already commissioned the magazine’s articles, but you are welcome to email our Web Editor Kenna Castleberry with any on- or off-topic ideas for an online-only piece. You can find her at
If you want to be on the mailing list of writers and receive the call-out three times a year for articles to be printed in the magazine as well as published online, please let us know at


For feature articles, you can pitch your own story any time. Please send us a 200 word outline (abstract) on your chosen topic, discussing your angle/outline for a piece. If you have any previous writing experience, do send us any examples (this is not a requirement, but would be helpful). The pitches are due by the 20th of October. If your pitch is accepted, the deadline for the first draft is the 3rd of November. Please email to send your pitches, with the word “PITCH” in the title.

If you are a keen photographer, we’d like to hear from you! All the articles have a photo attached and it would be great if we could use our own photos rather than stock photos. We also do a science behind the photo centerfold (see below) that needs a stunning photo.
