A science writer might encompass a number of different career possibilities such as an author of a book but the writer in this piece is a journalist for the prestigious Science News. Journalists have ‘beats’ and so does a journalist for a publication and this journalist’s beat is molecular biology. Reading about what she does and her background for this career might inspire a budding writer to pursue this writing niche.

A science writer is one career choice that can actually encompass many careers. In this article the author describes her career path, what she covers, the skills needed, and what advice she would give to high school students. This is a good article for a career exploration.
