Learn creative nonfiction techniques, work with science, technology and public policy scholars, consult with editors of major magazines and more … and get paid for the experience!
The Consortium for Science Policy & Outcomes (CSPO) at Arizona State University is presenting an intensive two-day workshop, “To think / To write / To publish,” led by Lee Gutkind, Editor of CNF and Distinguished Writer in Residence at CSPO. Thanks to funding from the National Science Foundation selected writers can attend this workshop absolutely free.
This is an opportunity to hone your craft, meet with editors, get feedback and make connections in the science writing community. You will learn how to apply creative nonfiction techniques, to work with scientists, to consult with editors of major magazines and to publish creative nonfiction.
Poets, fiction and nonfiction writers, journalists, documentary filmmakers, bloggers and other writers involved in alternative media, and museum communicators may apply. Applicants should be at the beginning stages of their careers; please see the application for complete guidelines.
There are a limited amount of spaces but those selected will receive an honorarium and all expenses for the two days of the workshop and the three day conference (“The Rightful Place of Science?”) that follows. The application includes a two page letter describing your interest/background in science, technology, and public policy – as well as a one page biographical statement.
