Interested in science writing? Are you looking to get published and get paid for it? Keep reading.
The newsletter of the European Geosciences Union, currently known as The Eggs, is a magazine and information service distributed for free to all EGU members — around 12,000 scientists. It will be rebranded and relaunched in late February or early March with a new layout, content structure, and name: GeoQ. The new version will keep much of the informative material of its predecessor, but will also see some changes. In particular, we want to feature even more pieces on recent research in the earth, planetary and space sciences written for a general (technical) audience.
We are looking for young scientists or established researchers with a demonstrable passion and aptitude for science communication interested in writing for GeoQ on a freelance basis. Science writers are also welcome to apply to contribute to the newsletter. Freelancers will not only see their texts published in a magazine with a wide readership, but will also receive a €100 Amazon voucher per 800 to 1000-words article as payment.
If you are interested in this opportunity, contact GeoQ’s Chief Editor, Bárbara T. Ferreira, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
