Recently, I was given a lead to a writing job coauthoring a book with a
medical toxicologist. The doctor is looking for someone who is interested in
the topic and interested in writing, but not necessarily an expert in
medical toxicology. As a writing student--and intern--focusing on science
writing, I feel that I lack the experience to do justice in this, which I
see as primarily an editing position. I will refer the doctor to the job
postings on this list and at NCSWA. However, one of the doctors main
interests--" mold affects the indoor air and may make people
sick"--relates directly to my internship at Home Energy Magazine. Indoor air
quality, as this is known in building science, is an area I am learning and
writing about in my internship.

It seems ideal to have jobs that can be mutually beneficial, as these two
could, so I hate to completely pass-up this opportunity. Does anyone have
any ideas how I could contribute while maintaining my integrity as a writer
by not out stepping my current skill set?
