As my collaborations with the MRC Centre For Regenerative Medicine continue, I'm delighted to have been asked to take part in judging a new competition that they are running in creative non-fiction. The competition includes a graphic non-fiction category, and it's going to be interesting to see what people make of the brief. In their words:
"We're running our first ever writing competition! Surprise us with your imaginative science writing, wow us with your graphic non-fiction or impress us in poetry. Upload your entry by the deadline on 30th June and you could win 300 Euros and see your work live online."I'll be judging the comics that come in alongside my Hope Beyond Hype collaborator Ken MacLeod. The competition deadline in 30th June and you can read more here.
If you are taking part and would like any advice on writing comics about science, feel free to drop me an email.
