Garden Writers Association
  • Career-related opportunities
  • Too little information
Professional societies abound. Recently I learned of an association of science song writers, dedicated to promoting science through (mostly humorous) songs (see below). That discovery came to mind when I discovered the Garden Writers Association (GWA). At least GWA has a fairly extensive set of writers–over 1,800 communicators who write for everything from garden clubs and Sunday newspapers to professional publications and commercial entities. Of most interest to writers will be the referrals page, which provides important contacts for article and manuscript publishing. Other useful aspects of the site include job opportunities, a speaker´s service, meeting information, and more.
