What the heck, Popular Science
This post is really a bit of a challenge to an old school science mag.
I’ve been pondering some new writing projects. On one hand I have previous venues that I can work through, but I’m interested in new challenges. While I’m pursuing some previous successes, one idea on my brain is to contribute to a classic magazine like Popular Science.
I spent some time looking up the editor, Mark Jannot with the usual tools. In fact, I’m only a degree away on LinkedIn from him thanks to my work at Engadget in the past. Ironically, submissions and ideas for new contributions to PopSci are only possible through snail mail. That’s right, the original science magazine limits fresh input to hard copy.
Mark, if you’ve set up a name triggered google search you might find this post. If you do, you might just question your staff as to why the heck they require hard copy submissions for story ideas and contributions. After that, feel free to ask me what I might be interested in doing for PopSci. Just email willo +at+ this blogs domain.
