Got a Question You’re Too Shy to Ask? Ask TON

Calling all science writers! The Open Notebook will soon be launching a recurring feature called “Ask TON.”

Even the most experienced journalists have questions about craft: How can I find the best structure for this story? Am I getting too close to the source I’m profiling? How should I word my FOIA request? How much time should I devote to participating in social media? The Open Notebook invites you to privately send us your craft-related questions. We will choose from among the questions we receive and pose them (anonymously) to one or more experienced journalists whose judgment we trust. Once we’re satisfied we’ve found the answers you need, we’ll post both the question (again, anonymously) and the answers at The Open Notebook.
