Khalil A. Cassimally posts about a project of his with Bora Zivkovic — a Google Docs spreadsheet with — so far — listings for 11 buyers of freelance writing, with links to successful pitches for some. Cassimally writes that the page is intended to become "a depository of successful pitches junior science writers are willing to share with fellow junior science writers" as well as "a place to start networking with 'friends in low places' (and not-so-low places)."

This could, potentially, be very useful for science writers--if they all had links to the actual pitches (so far, only 2 of the 11 entries have), and some information about payment would also be nice (currently, only 1 of the 11 includes this info).
