Here I am, fresh back from Sobaeksan (writeup coming soon on the SOAO workshop, I promise!), and already I’m looking for more astronomy immersion. (Though, this time, in English, so I can understand more of it!)
Launch Pad is, as of yesterday (well, to me, as it’s the 16th of February here and now) looking for applicants. Twelve lucky people — writers, whether of science, SF, film scripts, or other things — will be selected to get a crash course on astronomy out in Laramie, Wyoming. It’s an excellent opportunity. Find out more, and apply, at the Launch Pad website. The deadline for applications for the 2009 workshop is March 15th, and you’ll hear back by the end of March.
Also, a reminder for aspiring speculative fiction writers, that the Clarion West Workshop is still taking applications until March 1st 2009 for its summer workshop. More on this year’s workshop, and how to apply, here. (Clarion Workshop in San Diego has the same deadline, but I’m biased towards Clarion West, simply by virtue of it being where I went… though both workshops’ lineups generally look pretty damned good this year!)
