Pitch BrainFacts.org
BrainFacts.org tells stories of scientific discoveries, the people behind them, and how they relate to our everyday lives. Knowing about the brain's inner workings helps paint a better picture of the human experience that explores the universe between our ears. We’re looking for freelance science writers, journalists, and multimedia creators with a strong portfolio in science communication to pitch us original stories about the brain and nervous system. Before you pitch, read our pitch guide.

Pitches are subject to review by our editors. We do not publish medical advice, blog posts, essays, book or film reviews. We will only respond to pitches submitted with scientific references or sources.

  • Your Brain & The Smart Phone
