Hi Rod and David,
David, I'm an ASC member, but also the president of AMWA (Australasian Medical Writers Association)
and I think your proposal would be of particular interest to our membership. Only a small number of
members put their names up on the freelance list, and it sounds like you are looking more for medical
writers who dabble, rather than those who make it their career. I therefore suggest you reach
everyone by going to http://www.medicalwriters.org/ and clicking on 'advertise' on the left column.
This will cost $100, or $50 if you become a member first.
Dr Justin Coleman
