Robert J. Sawyer to be writer-in-residence at the Canadian Light Source

I’m tickled pink with the announcement that Robert J. Sawyer, a friend of mine and Canada’s most acclaimed science fiction writer, will be writer-in-residence at the Canadian Light Source in Saskatoon this June and July.
If you’re an aspiring writer, book a time to talk to Rob. I twice took part in his classes on writing science fiction at the Banff Centre (part of the Writing With Style program) and he’s an excellent teacher, critiquer and mentor. (And as I’ve recounted before, Marseguro was born from a writing exercise one morning in one of his classes, which is why Sawyer’s Point is a prominent landmark in a key scene in that novel, and the name of a shuttle in Terra Insegura.)
I look forward to getting together with him while he’s in the province!
(By the way, if you’re not familiar with the Canadian Light Source, you can read my column about it here.)
