Sawyer’s synchrotron engagement

Robert J. Sawyer is coming to a synchrotron near you — if you live in Saskatchewan, that is. In June and July 2009, Sawyer will be writer-in-residence at the Canadian Light Source, Canada’s largest particle accelerator, in Saskatoon. The physics research facility has never had a writer-in-residence before (shocking!); in fact, the position was created specifically for Sawyer, who will mentor writers on the CLS staff and in the community. The residency came about as an opportunity to “explore the creative processes at the root of science and art, and increase public discussion of science in Canada.”
