newsletters make it official

If you are San Francisco Bay Area-local, or capable of traveling here in March, you might want to check out FOGcon. It’s a new con starting up March 11-13, with a theme this year of “The City in SF/F;” having looked at their programming possibilities, they definitely have some interesting and varied ideas for how to approach that topic.

I’ll be there, and will presumably be on at least one panel. Furthermore — I guess it’s official, since it got mentioned in the recent newsletter — I’ll be running one of their writing workshops. Looks like the setup will be stories under 10K, submitted with cover letter by February 15th; default arrangement is for a Clarion-style workshop, with each student reading and critting the other pieces in addition to the instructor’s feedback. Erin Cashier, Jed Hartman, and David Levine are the other instructors, and we’re each getting our own section, so if you have a preference for one or another of us (or want to specifically run away from me), mention that in your cover letter.

(This will actually be the first time I’ve run a workshop like this at a con. But I have taught writing before, for one semester.)

Anyway, if you’re interested, register soon! I hope to see some of you there.

    An SF con in SF? And they didn’t call it SFCon?

    “I’m going to SF for the SF con SFCon.”

    o_O Dude, wait, you’d want to take the workshop? You have YEAR’S BEST REPRINTS. Maybe David or Jed can teach you something, but I sure as hell wouldn’t be qualified.

    Not sure how the signup is being handled; I don’t have full details yet. But if you ping Rachel Swirsky, she can tell you, as she’s the one in charge.

    I am so excited for FOGcon. Which reminds me, I’ve got reading to do for it.

    Aw, and I a friend who’s running the con that just invited me to come. Unfortunately, I’m going to be moving across the country at around that time, so I definitely won’t have time to attend any cons. Too bad :(.

    Excellent. I will see you there.
