• Allison is looking for pitches related to climate change—particularly stories that take a positive, "can-do" approach to the challenge of an anthropogenically warming world. She hopes to attract writers who would like to combat traditional narratives about climate change and bring clarity to this complex and, for some, personal issue. At NOVA, we believe science stories are human stories, so people-centered pitches are encouraged.
• NOVA Next feature stories are typically 1800-2000 words in length.
• NOVA prides itself on its reputation for providing rigorous science journalism. Freelancers are held responsible for thorough fact-checking.
