Interested in a chance to gain some writing experience and help AWIS?

AWIS National is currently looking for writers to support the Washington Wire and AWIS Magazine.

The Washington Wire is a monthly commitment consisting of tracking down 1-2 news articles on a given topic plus one of your own interests. Writers will work with an editor to draft abstracts for their issue of the Wire.

Writing for the AWIS Magazine consists of a single 500-800 word article each quarter. The writing deadlines are July 28, Sept. 4, and Dec. 18, for this year. AWIS will give direction with writing as well as article ideas and offer guidance during the writing process. It is a very hands-on process. Some articles are fairly basic, while others are more involved. They have something to offer anyone who is interested.

AWIS-PHL Treasurer Catherine Moorwood wrote for the Washington Wire for almost 2 years and would be happy to share more information with anyone who is interested. You can reach her at Or contact Allison J. Kimble, Communications Manager, Association for Women in Science (703) 894-4490
