So, yeah, I spent the last 8 days in Los Angeles at the Writers of the Future workshop (volume 33). It’s been a total blast meeting the winners and writing about them. Along the way I got to catch up with Mike Resnick. Robert Sawyer, and Kevin Anderson, and learn once again from Dave Farland and Tim Powers–not to mention the long string of judges who stopped in to talk about the craft and the business. The contest is a major, major event in the lives of these quarterly winners, and it’s a heady experience to watch them progress through the week.
It’s going to be a great group, too. I’m sure I’ll be posting more about the gang soon, but if you’re interested in daily details of the week you can find them here:
