Crack your knuckles and warm up your keyboards, it’s time to polish up your short story or first chapter for the annual Armadillocon Writing Workshop!
Submissions are DUE Friday June 15, 2018
This is an excellent, low-cost workshop for writers who want to:
Work with professional writers and editors familiar with speculative fiction, science fiction, and fantasy.
- Learn how to give and receive critique in a small-group, face-to-face setting
- Find out if workshops and in-person critique groups are useful to their writing progress
- Find their tribe and make connections with others that will serve their writing year round.
- Take their writing to the next level.
The workshop will be Friday, August 3, 2018
We will spend the morning in panels on the craft and business of writing and doing a writing exercise or two. Then, lunch with the professional writers and fellow students in your breakout critique group. The afternoon will be spent in in-depth, collaborative critique sessions where you will be both giving and receiving critique.
Just $90 gets you the full-day workshop and a full convention membership to attend all of the activities for the entire weekend. ArmadilloCon is an excellent regional literary convention, which means there will be lots of great panels about writing, reading, and the state of the genre (there are also panels about movies, tv shows, gaming, and everything geek).
Sponsored seats for writers of color!
We are committed to promoting diversity and access for all workshop attendees. Writing in a genre centered on exploration and encountering the Other must include voices and visions from writers and readers of all kinds. The Workshop actively seeks to include students, faculty, visiting scholars, and volunteers from a variety of backgrounds including, but not limited to race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, and ability.
To that purpose we are offering a limited number of sponsored seats to the workshop for writers of color. To apply for a seat, follow the link on the workshop page.
