WANTED: Scientists who want to write about their research or
fields of expertise for intelligent non-specialists.

That's the stock in trade of "The Sciences," an unusually
handsome and literate science magazine published by the New York
Academy of Sciences. Specifically, we are looking for articles
and essays, 3,000 to 4,500 words long, dealing non-technically
with the whole range scientific disciplines and issues.

You don't have to be the next Stephen Jay Gould or James Trefil
(though nothing would please us more: Gould writes a regular
column for us), as long as you have something worth saying and a
knack for telling the tale. Our editorial team can help you to
burnish your prose to a high gloss.

If you are interested, get in touch with me by E-mail, phone, or
letter. And please feel free to post this notice anywhere

I look forward to hearing from you.
