Hi all,

I'm passing on an e-mail from Gordon Van Gelder who's promoting an astronomy workshop for SF writers.

*Astronomy Workshop for Teachers in Wyoming

that will be for teaching writers more about astronomy, in order to improve the
quality and quantity of astronomy in fiction. There will be an overnight trip
to a 2.3 meter telescope, hands-on exercises processing Hubble images, and
more. Costs will be held as low as possible, with full rides and more for
qualified writers.

I was unsuccessful with this last year, and the panel wanted to have some
information that there was actually a market for the workshop. Please take five
minutes and complete a survey that will help me address this issue in the new
proposal. Please pass this onto other writers you might know.

Here is the link:
