Budding chemist Christine Herman wants to be a science writer and has taken the first step by winning a science writing internship at a high-energy physics lab, she writes in the Just Another Electron Pusher blog for Chemical & Engineering News. "Every science writer I’ve talked to seems to have taken a slightly different path to arrive at the same destination," she says. "But there was one piece of advice that nearly every science writer gave me: Take an internship."
