ASC members may be interested in this week-long retreat in Clunes for people interested and involved in science writing.

Science Writing for the Wider Audience
Quality Five-Day Residential Retreat
in Clunes, Victoria
Australia's only booktown village

Sunday 10 February (12 noon) to Friday 15 February (4 pm), 2013

Take your great idea for a book and turn it into reality. Under the expert guidance of both an experienced writer and commercial publisher, this five day residential retreat will show you how.

The key to all great books about ideas is a well worked out and solid book proposal. This retreat will show you how; it will give you a set of skills essential when writing for a wide audience and it will introduce you to publishers eager for new ideas.

You will learn, and come away with:
*         A set of  skills for writing for a wide audience
*         Your great idea and passion honed and shaped into a book format
*         A solid book proposal
*         One or two sample chapters of your book
*         Contacts with publishers and knowledge of what they are looking for and how they want it presented.

You will be working in a small group of like-minded people with opportunities for individual and minigroup workshops and consultations.

With your accommodation and meals fully catered for, you can set your mind to making the most of this unique experience in the heart of Australia' only booktown village.
