Anne N. Connor

I am a freelance science writer and editor with a master’s degree in science writing from Johns Hopkins University. My preferred beat is solution-focused stories about climate, the environment, and sustainable food systems. I also write about health and other life sciences stories on assignment. My stories have appeared in Undark, Vox, Knowable, Modern Farmer, and The Scientist, among others. View my clips.

I offer contracted editing services. My 20+ years of editing experience encompasses academic research papers, grant proposals, and magazine articles for a general audience. I currently serve as the editor-in-chief for The Science Writer, a publication of the Johns Hopkins University MA in Science Writing Program. See more about my editing.
