School is back in session, thanks to the QWF. There are a number of 8-week and intensive-day workshops throughout the fall – including a couple led by PWAC members VP Craig Silverman and Beverly Akerman.
Mediaville (aka Giancarlo) also wants to let us know about a special opportunity. Courtesy of the Mediaville blog:
Experienced non-fiction writers and journalists have a rare opportunity to spend a day learning from successful New York-based freelance writer, Robin Marantz Henig. You may have heard the buzz about her most recent NY Times Sunday Magazine cover story, What is it about 20-somethings?, the most-emailed story in the Times that week.
Marantz Henig is a New York City freelance writer and the winner of a Guggenheim Foundation fellowship and an American Society of Journalists and Authors career achievement award. She is the author of eight books, most recently Pandora’s Baby: How the First Test Tube Babies Sparked the Reproductive Revolution (the focus of an episode of “American Experience,” the PBS documentary series, in 2006) and The Monk in the Garden: The Lost and Found Genius of Gregor Mendel, the Father of Genetics (nominated for a National Book Critics Circle Award in 2001). Her work appears frequently in The New York Times Magazine, where she is a contributing writer, and she has also written for The Washington Post, Smithsonian, Discover, and just about every women’s magazine.
