Saturday, January 16 9:00-10:05am

A. From Blog to Book: Using Blogs and Social Networks to Develop Your Professional Writing – Tom Levenson, Brian Switek and Rebecca Skloot

Description: Many bloggers have the desire to use their blogs as a springboard to larger writing projects, such as a book, but the details of this process are obscure to many aspiring science writers. In this session we will discuss the details of writing a proposal, finding an agent, using blogs as “writing laboratories”, and making the most of the science blogging community in promoting your projects.

Discuss:

I’m looking forward to this one. David Dobbs

Blogger and author here also, so what David said! Maryn McKenna
