For many centuries , people have been writing about many different subjects. Some may just write fiction for pure entertainment , others may write non-fiction to inform people about a person , place, event, etc. Whether they relieze it or not , a lot of writers impact or influence the world. They can release new information to the public or just give their take on a topic. A lot of the influential people tackle important topics dealing with health, politics, the citizens, or even the world as a whole.

Natalie Angier is a great example of an influential writer. She was born in New York on February 16th , 1958. In college she studied Astronomy and English , at both the University of Michigan and Barnard College. She was hoping to start her own science magazine after college, but instead she was hired to work on one.

She also was an editor for the woman's magazine , " Savvy" , a professer of journalism at the New York University in the graduate program of Science and Environmental Reporting. In 1990, she got a big break , writing for New York Times about many different topics involving science. She wrote about animals , from cockroaches to turtles , as well as human issues , such as depression , men's self harm , and bad mothers. Her hard work paid off when ten months after she started writing she recieved a Pulitzer Prize in the category of Beat Reporting for a series of 10 articles she wrote.
