Hi! I'm Jane.

I’m a Seattle-based freelance writer who has reported on everything from Neanderthal poop to space law. I'm a regular contributor to  Slate's Future Tense and a contributing editor at High Country News.


My work has also appeared in publications like WIRED, the Washington Post, National Geographic, Smithsonian, Scientific American, Outside, and The Atlantic, and in the Open Notebook's anthology The Craft of Science Writing. I also blog at The Last Word On Nothing, and teach a course on science communication at the University of Washington.

Have a story tip to share? Organizing an event you'd like me to speak at? Giving away a bottle of 23 year old Pappy Van Winkle? I’d love to hear from you! You can reach me at janehu [at] nasw [dot] org, or tweet at @jane_c_hu.
