Nechama Sammet Moring, Writer
I'm a versatile writer, though most of my work has some connection to justice, survivorship, science, and/or the good fight. I don't believe in neutrality, and I don't tell neutral stories. Cuz they don't exist.
As a freelancer, I focus on science writing, health journalism, investigation, liberation and creative non-fiction. I'm also fond of news of the weird. Here are some of my interests, and a few of the projects currently in the works:
Interests, Projects-in-Progress & Dreams
Articles and Investigations I'm Trying to Sell (Hire Me?!)
All in progress, at various stages of completeness, wouldn't you love to print my work?

I believe we are all born with books inside us -- these are mine. Some of mine.

Friendship as an Evolutionary Strategy and the Emotional Intelligence of Dogs
A Radical Guide to Fertility, Abortion, Pregnancy, Birth and Postpartum: Sort of like what to expect when you're expecting, only minus the misogynistic bullshit, medicalizing, cishetnormativity and perkiness; I want a gender neutral informational guide that believes pregnant people are autonomous, smart and revolutionary
