Maggie Koerth-Baker at YCP

Attention Professional Writing Majors

The 2012 Writer-In-Resident is Maggie Koerth-Baker.  Koerth-Baker is the science editor of BoingBoing.net, a science and technology based blogsite.  Her work has been published in print and online by National Geographic, Discover, Reader’s Digest and Scientific American.  Her book, Before the Lights Go Out: Conquering the Energy Crisis Before It Conquers Us, is now available at Amazon.com.

There are two events scheduled during Koerth-Baker’s visit.  On Thursday March 29, at 7:30 PM in the DeMeester Recital Hall (in Wolf Hall) there will be a public reading and a question and answer session.  Her book will also be available for purchase and signing following the session.

The second event is the annual Writer’s Workshop with the Writer-in-Resident.  Eighteen participants will be accepted for the workshop on Saturday, March 31, from 8:00 AM to 1:30 PM, breakfast and lunch are included.  To register for this workshop with Koerth-Baker, see Ms. Deb Staley in Humanities room 161.  A deposit of $10 is required, but will be reimbursed when you attend the workshop.

Go ahead...take a swing. I'll duck and listen.
