We're delighted to announce that October's speaker is Colin Salter, who is a professional writer. He will talk to us about writing non-fiction/popular science and research. Here is Colin's biog:
Colin Salter writes non-fiction to commission, on a remarkably broad range of subjects from Johnny Depp to space exploration, from British birds to US soul singers, from architectural history to the mysteries of the human body. He runs 'Stranger Than Fiction', a peer review group for non-fiction writers. He was recently selected to represent Edinburgh UNESCO City of Literature in its Polish counterpart Krakow as a writer in (brief) residence, but he's from Glasgow.
