freelance science writer/fact-checker

Home: Welcome

Hello there! I'm Clara Chaisson, a freelance science writer based in central Vermont.

I write (and enthuse) about all things nature. You can find my byline in AudubonEos, onEarthPacific Standard, Wirecutter, and more. I have a master's in science journalism from Boston University and a bachelor's in botany from Connecticut College. 

In addition to my own writing, I fact-check book chapters, features, and articles. 

Please feel free to send hellos, assignment inquiries, and/or cat pictures to:
