On Sunday, November 21st, I’m teaching a workshop called “Writing on the Fast Track” at the Hugo House in Seattle. I just heard that there are only five slots left in the workshop, so if you’ve been thinking about signing up, don’t wait too long.
Here’s what the course catalog has to say about the workshop:
Think you never have time to write? Think again. Campbell Award-winning author Mary Robinette Kowal wrote her Hugo-nominated short story “Evil Robot Monkey” in 90 minutes. If you have 90 minutes, you can have a story –all it takes is understanding how to make every word work double-time. In this workshop, learn the same techniques she uses to create new fiction. Through exercises focusing on viewpoint, dialogue and plot, you”ll learn how to let nothing go to waste. By the end of the session, participants will be given a writing prompt and complete their own short story.
Is this an insane thing to promise a complete short story after a seven-hour workshop? Probably, but it’ll be a fun ride.
You can register for the workshop using the links below, but you’ll need to setup a sign-in name with the Hugo House first. There’s also information about registration on their website.
