Angela Spivey, freelance writer and editor

Write, edit, repeat.

An independent science writer and editor based in North Carolina, that's what I do most days.

My specialty is telling stories that get the science right but speak to a wide audience. I specialize in environmental health and medicine but have also written about personal finance, business, and theatre.

I have written for the News and Observer/Charlotte Observer SciTech pages, Environmental Health Perspectives, DukeMed magazine,, New Scientist Insider, Nature Education, DramaBiz magazine, The Scientist, N.C. State alumni magazine, and more.

I tell stories in any number of forms: magazine features, news stories, press releases, reports, web copy.
