Launch Pad application period open
Last year, I went to the Launch Pad Astronomy Workshop for writers in Laramie, Wyo. You can read about my experience here and here and more here. It was fantastic. I learned a lot about astronomy and made some great friends. Our instructors Mike Brotherton, Christian Ready and Andria Schwortz were great at making the material understandable and interesting, and also are wonderful people. The application period for the 2014 workshop is open now through March 15. And here's some great news: thanks to support from grants, the cost to participants this year is $0. All you have to do is get yourself there and buy some meals. That's it. So if you're a science fiction writer who might need some brushing up on your science, I recommend you apply, which you can do right here.
