We are sorry that Christie Aschwanden will not be joining us next year as an instructor. Her reasons are exciting ones: a new job as a science writer at Five Thirty-Eight and a journalism fellowship at the Santa Fe Institute.
This year’s instructors will be
George Johnson, a New York Times science writer, whose nine books include The Cancer Chronicles: Unlocking Medicine’s Deepest Mystery and The Ten Most Beautiful Experiments
Sandra Blakeslee, a New York Times science writer and co-author of The Body Has a Mind of its Own (with Matthew Blakeslee), Sleights of Mind:
What the Neuroscience of Magic Reveals about Our Everyday Deceptions, and many other books.
Denise Grady, science writer for The New York Times and winner of the Victor Cohn Prize for Excellence in Medical Science Reporting
Alan Boyle, science editor for NBC News Digital (also known as MSNBC)
Christie Aschwanden, an award-winning freelance science writer and health columnist for the Washington Post
In addition we’ll be joined by David Corcoran, editor of the Science Times section of the New York Times.
Please see our website for instructions on how to apply.
We are in the final throes of picking next year’s instructors and will make an announcement soon. Thanks for your patience.
The 20th annual Santa Fe Science Writing Workshop will begin on Monday evening, May 11, 2015, and run through Saturday morning, May 16, in downtown Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Please stay tuned for details.
Some material to read in advance. More to come.

We’ve posted the class list. We are now taking applications for the waiting list. There is still a pretty good chance we can squeeze in one or two more people.
We’ve accepted 43 people, leaving 2 openings. If you plan to stay at the hotel, note that the cutoff date for the discounted rate is April 7.
We’ve accepted 36 people so far. That leaves nine positions left. If you have applied but have not heard back, please let us know. We’ve also updated the daily schedule.
