Science Writing Workshop Open to Applicants

Dear Readers, Writers, Teachers, Students and All Members of the General Public,

We encourage you to apply for the following FREE workshop. Writing samples need not be science writing (nonfiction in any category is acceptable).

Writing About Science and Technology

Nonfiction Workshop Offered by Writers Institute Fellow James Lasdun

New York State Writers Institute Fellow James Lasdun will conduct a nonfiction workshop during the spring 2012 semester that will focus on writing about science and technology. Advances in science and technology have enormous impacts on our lives. The need to understand them is more urgent than ever and yet how can these often highly esoteric matters be made comprehensible to the general public?

The workshop is scheduled for eight Monday nights (March 19, 26, April 9, 16, 23, 30, May 7, 14) from 6 to 9 p.m. The class will take place on the University at Albany’s uptown campus. This workshop is offered for non-credit, free of charge for non-University students.

Manuscripts delivered in person will be accepted up until 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 22, 2012. Mailed manuscripts must be postmarked no later than Friday, February 17, 2012. No faxes or e-mails.
