Ten people have been given early acceptance into the workshop. We look forward to the next wave of applications. While there is no official deadline, we encourage you to apply early to ensure your choice of instructor and lodging at Inn of the Governors.


instructor change

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.

Meanwhile we are delighted to announce that she will be replaced by Adam Rogers, writer and editor for Wired and author of Proof: The Science of Booze.

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

What the Neuroscience of Magic Reveals about Our Everyday Deceptions
