Coaching & Mentoring

Are you a scientist interested in writing for the general public? 

One barrier to science literacy in the United States is the lack of accessible science information from scientists. Some have called for scientists to engage more with the general public through the popular press. 

Writing a book for the general public (or trade) audience is also an effective strategy for advancing or pivoting one's career. 

Melanie recently published a five-part series on tips for academics who wish to write for the general public. Coaching sessions either on an individual or group basis for those who wish to write for the general public. Please contact her at melaniepefferphd (at) to sign up! 



THANK YOU!! I have toyed with the idea of writing a monograph (even though I don't fully understand what this is, but it sounds academic enough 😃), but reading your article on tips for writing a book to pivot out of academia has made me change angles about WHO to write for. Will also be following closely for the other parts. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge!
