I am a "downsized" analytical chemist who is starting a freelance science
editing/writing business. I live in the Midwest, but would like to relocate
to the New York City area as soon as I can afford it. Please take a few
minutes to answer the following questions, and e-mail your responses directly
to me. You may remain anonymous if you choose. If I get more than ten
responses before July 15, I will post a summary to this news group for
everyone's information. This survey is also posted on CHEMINF-L.
Thanks in advance,
Nancy McGuire
