Contribute to Lateral

We’re passionate about providing paid opportunities for aspiring science communicators to gain experience, hone their writing skills in an editorial environment and get published.

Our team is still growing, and we’re always on the lookout for enthusiastic new contributors to work with. Whether you’re a scientist, writer or artist (or some combination of all of the above!), and whether you have editorial experience or are just getting started — if you’re interested in getting involved with Lateral, we’d love to hear from you.

The best way to start writing for Lateral is to pitch to us. You can also join our Facebook pitching and commissioning group

If you're an illustrator and would like to work with us, email our art director at with an expression of interest and a link to your portfolio of work.
