It is the solemn duty of every Viable Paradise grad to pass on the word and thus, I do so with today’s post:
Viable Paradise will be held October 3rd – 8th on Martha’s Vineyard and is now accepting applications until June 30th. I’m going to quote John Scalzi, a three-time instructor:
Those attending get intensive week-long instruction on the art, craft and business of writing science fiction and fantasy from the likes of Patrick and Teresa Nielsen Hayden, Jim Macdonald and Debra Doyle, Steven Gould and Laura Mixon, Elizabeth Bear and me, of whom all told have more books, awards and relevant practical experience in the genre and in publishing than is at all decent. It’s also got an impressive list of alumni, including nominees for Hugo, Nebulas, BSFAs and other significant genre awards. It’s a really good and useful workshop, in other words, by people who know their stuff, for people who want to learn and publish.
Polish up your submissions and get them in. You won’t regret it.
