Hook, Line & Science Communication Fellow will seek out and obtain research articles of interest to anglers and use a template to create 12 lay-friendly summaries of the work. Each story will run approximately 500 words. Sea Grant fisheries specialists and an editor from the communication team will edit all stories prior to publication.

The fellow’s writing also will be available for publication in the award-winning Coastwatch magazine.

Meet our current fellow: Maya Afilalo

Maya holds an MFA from North Carolina State University. In addition to Hook, Line and Science, her work appears in NC State Applied Ecology News, Lilith Magazine, The Pennsylvania Gazette, and elsewhere.
