Promote your book at the British Science Festival/Regional Meet Up
We are planning to run a regional meetup at the British Science Festival in Coventry on Friday September 13 as part of a festival takeover of the local arts quarter, Fargo Village. We will most likely run the meetup for members and other science writers at the festival in a bar in this area. However, the festival has offered to provide an author from the ABSW a slot at an evening of 'lightning talks' by science authors held at a local independent bookshop.
Meet your new ABSW Executive Board
Here are the individuals elected to serve on the ABSW Executive Board at last week's AGM. These individuals will serve two years on the Board as at the AGM the standing orders were amended so that individuals are now elected for two year terms rather than one. Congratulations to them all.
