Ultimate Science Fiction Writing Workshop

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/.

The workshop costs $400, starts April 2 at Pandemonium Books and Games in Central Square, Cambridge, and runs ten Monday evenings, 7:30-9:30, from April 2 until June 11 (Memorial Day excluded). Advance registration is required. You can pick up a registration form in the store, or request one by email from the instructors. Don’t delay!

For more information, call Pandemonium at 617-547-3721, or email the instructors at jeff [at] starrigger.net or csgcsgcsg [at] aol.com.

If you’re in our area, and you’re an aspiring writer, I hope you’ll come join us!

    And then after that head west to Indiana!

    Either that we need to get some sci-fi writers to convince some scientists that instant teleportation (ala star trek transporter) is actually possible and then the commute to Boston wouldn’t be so bad! =;)

    Then back South East to Georgia :p

    My 6-7 writing projects that were at various stages- conceptual/outline to near completion- were boxed up and misplaced for about 5 years. Writing can do wonders for deciphering yourself. Maybe one of these days. I figure I’ll delve back into them again one of these days.

    You guys may be onto something there. What we need is a big RV (powered by a rooftop windmill), in which we and all of our groupies could travel around the country spreading the True Way…

    Or maybe just teaching workshops.

    As a participant in the first session (which still continues as a writing group), I can heartily endorse Jeff and Craig’s program. Jeff and Craig both put a lot of time and effort into the sessions and their critiques, and are both thoughtful, perceptive, and meticulous editors.

    Three thumbs up! (it’s SF, after all!)
