Science Write Now is excited to announce the launch of our Learning Studio, beginning with four virtual, self-paced creative writing courses developed with the support of Inspire Queensland for National Science Week.
Each course will take 3-4 hours, and is completely asynchronous—so you can complete it in your own time!
