New Gig: Acting Editor of Science Philosophy & History at Lateral Mag!

I am super-psyched to announce that I’m taking on a new part-time gig as editing stories on the history & philosophy of science at an up-and-coming webzine called Lateral.

I’ve been taking some time off from blogging to focus on freelancing and the upcoming redesign of the Scientista website, but don’t worry. Will back with more recaps, book reviews, and miscellany by the end of the month (if not sooner.)

Incidentally, we’re still looking for contributors and section editors, so if you’re interested in science writing, check us out!
