Elise Hancock, a professional writer and editor with 30 years experience, provides both novice and seasoned science writers with practical advice and insights allowing them to progress to their next level. Includes real-life examples and anecdotes. Covers the essentials of science writing: finding story ideas, learning the science, opening and shaping a piece, polishing drafts, overcoming blocks, and conducting interviews with scientists and other experts who may not be accustomed to making their ideas understandable to lay readers.
I am so proud to be Elise's student. Read this book and I suspect you will be too.--from the foreword by Robert Kanigel, author of The Man Who Knew Infinity "In Ideas into Words, Elise Hancock has managed to write a guide to science writing that is not only comprehensive--she answers every question I could have imagined asking and then some--but also wise, vivid, and an awful lot of fun. I wish I'd had something like this to help me when I was starting out."--Michael D. Lemonick, author of Other Worlds: The Search for Life in the Universe, winner of the American Institute of Physics Writing Award "Elise Hancock's excitement is infectious. One puts her book down and feels drawn to a keyboard."--Joel Havemann, editor, Washington bureau of the Los Angeles Times
