"I'm trying to get funds out of NASA for an annual two-week workshop 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.

Thanks!
