We Need this Course at the University of Toronto
Carl Zimmer ran a Science Writing Workshop at Yale University a few weeks ago.
I want him to give the same workshop here but I don't know if we can afford him.
Carl told us on his blog (The Island of Science Writing) about a short course in science writing that he is teaching this summer at the Shoals Marine Laboratory in Maine (USA). That sounded pretty neat so I thought I'd check it out by following the link [SCIENCE WRITING: BIOSM 3110]. I entertained the hope that I could take this course from Carl ... until I saw the price. The total cost for the week ($2,286) includes room and board but it's still a little steep for me, even considering the quality of the lecturer.
Hey Carl, do you have a discount for senior citizens?
