Jeremy Tolbert writes in to tell us about Launch Pad, a free, NASA-funded workshop in Wyoming for established writers that aims to provide a “crash course” in modern astronomy through workshops, guest lectures, and observation through the University of Wyoming’s two large telescopes.
This year’s guest instructor is Jerry Oltion, amateur astronomer and science fiction author (Abandon In Place, The Getaway Special, Anywhere But Here and Paradise Passed). Other lecturers include University of Wyoming professors Mike Brotherton, PhD (and author of Star Dragon…read it for free!) and Jim Verley.
Interested writers should apply soon…the deadline is May 1st and there are only 12 openings.
