Noted without additional comment, the PP slides I used for a presentation in a Professional Writing class for my colleague Scott McLaren. My topic was basically "how to be a science writer," with my focus being that the most basic requirement for being a science writer is knowing a bit about how science works. What doesn't come through in the slides as much as in my oral presentation was the emphasis on finding and interviewing gatekeepers and other members of the invisible college as a key to good science writing. If any of my readers have any suggestions on improving or correcting some of my ideas, I would be more than happy to hear from you.
