I am sorry to report I haven’t scheduled any workshops for this summer–I’m simply not going to any conventions this summer. I will be at the Locus Awards on June 26th–maybe I’ll see some of you there!–and I am planning to go to Orycon this November.
I accept students for online and face-to-face mentoring on an individual basis as often as my schedule permits. If you have a project that might benefit from an in-depth analysis, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As of today, I have two slots left for students in Novel Writing II: Writing a Novel The Professional Way, the new (to me) novel workshop course I am teaching via the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program this summer. ‘Fun slavedriver’ is how one former student has described me, and the class does promise to be a fair amount of work–everyone in it will write fifty pages of a novel as well as workshopping those of a few of their classmates.
The official start date for class is July 14th, but my classroom should be open July 12th; people will get acquainted with the discussion forums, introduce themselves to each other, and talk a little about the books they are going to work on before writing and critting begins in earnest.
I hope to have a new short story announcement for you all very soon, but in the meantime my website is getting another revamp, and as I figure out how all this lovely WordPress stuff works and where I want to locate content, I’m also figuring out which of my online publications are still out there and available for interested readers.
Here’s the list, by venue:
“Five Good Things about Meghan Sheedy”
“The Town on Blighted Sea”
“What Song the Sirens Sang”
“A Key to the Illuminated Heretic”
“Faces of Gemini”
“Ruby, in the Storm”
“Origin of Species”
“The Dark Hour”
“Three Times Over the Falls”
“The Children of Port Allain“
What’s here represents about a third of my published stories–there’s a list at Wikipedia.
