Penguicon Writing Workshop

Me. Cathrynne M. Valente (catvalente). Two mornings of workshoppy goodness. (Probably 9 am - Noon, Saturday and Sunday.)

From the Penguicon site:

May 1-3 Penguicon will be hosting a Writer's Workshop led by Jim C. Hines and Catherynne M. Valente.

Due to space limitations, only 15 spots are available on a first come first served basis to New and Unpublished writers in the genre fiction field. Submissions are now OPEN!

Submissions should be no more than 5000 words, either a short story or the opening of a novel. Submissions should be e-mailed to jchines42 -at- hotmail.com. Stories must be received by March 15.

Submissions should be sent as RTF attachments documents in standard manuscript format. See http://www.shunn.net/format/story.html Yes, this is a test.

Stories will be e-mailed to all participants before the convention. Everyone is expected to have read and prepared a critique for the other participants' work. If you'd like more info on critiquing see http://www.sfwa.org/writing/turkeycity.html

For more info on the pros leading this workshop see their web sites at www.jimchines.com and www.catherynnemvalente.com.
