Free-Lance Writing Opportunities in the DC Metro Region

As a published author on science, history and travel, including the book, Gingseng, The Divine Root, David A. Taylor will speak on crafting narratives in the areas of science, history and travel -- and finding markets where they overlap.


David Taylor explores revealing connections between people and their worlds. His articles have appeared in Smithsonian, The Washington Post, The Village Voice, Outside, The Christian Science Monitor, Forbes, and The Atlantic Unbound.

He has written award-winning documentaries for PBS, National Geographic, the Discovery Channel and others.

His new book of fiction, just released, is the award-winning collection Success: Stories.

David is now finishing work on a documentary film entitled Soul of A People: Voices from the Writers' Project. Ralph Ellison, John Cheever, Richard Wright, Margaret Walker, and Saul Bellow were young and hungry when they took jobs on an emergency relief effort in the 1930s. This film gives the untold story of what they uncovered about America and what it means now.

David teaches Science Writing at The Writer�s Center in Bethesda, MD. The basic workshop explores how people with a technical background can begin writing for broad audiences and how non-scientists can weave scientific thought into their writing in engaging ways. The advanced workshop uses exercises and examples, with a focus on longer pieces, working with editors, conducting lively interviews, and managing a portfolio of topics.
