For any of you in the Boston area…
I will soon be co-teaching a 10-week SF and fantasy writing workshop, along with Craig Gardner. Here’s the official press release:
The Ultimate Science Fiction Writing Workshop starts its second run! Two veteran SF/F writers—Jeffrey A. Carver and Craig Shaw Gardner—will teach elements of the craft and tricks of the trade, and conduct intensive workshopping of your work. This is a serious workshop for people seriously seeking to improve their science fiction and fantasy writing. It’s a workshop for people eager to work hard, and willing to learn.
Between them, Jeff and Craig have written forty-some novels and a like number of short stories. Jeff has been a Nebula finalist, and Craig has made the NY Times bestseller list. Both have wide teaching experience. For more information about Jeff and Craig, visit their web sites at http://www.starrigger.net/ and http://www.craigshawgardner.com/.
