One of the things I love about science writing is the absolute variety I meet in my working day. I’m always learning new things, and I get to spend time talking to passionate, clever and interesting people.
Below are some of the stories I worked on last month for the Perth-based ScienceNetwork WA. SNWA articles require a journalistic “hard news” writing style, which is very different to the storytelling style I’m used to, but they’re still great fun to research and write. I’m always learning something new.
From WA’s tectonic foundations to the Bardi Jawi seagrass meadows, from microalgae to Australian football, from our Jurassic past to our (hopefully) glittery future…and all of it researched in Western Australia. Yay us!
