Here in Las Vegas…
I was stunned when I discovered that there are still three spots open in the Short Story Craft Workshop here in Las Vegas, April 17th through the 21st.
The workshop is taught by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, possibly the best working short story writer in the business.
I was surprised there were still spots open for two reasons.
First, in this workshop Kris is going to teach the craft of writing short fiction across all areas of fiction. And in our modern world of indie publishing and discoverability, short fiction is critical in every genre. Short fiction can not only can make you some nice money, but it can help bring you readers in so many different ways.
Second, I was surprised that this workshop wasn’t full because it is Kris teaching it.
Not only is Kris a New York Times and USA Today bestselling writer, she is the only human ever to have stories published in Asimov’s, Analog, Ellery Queen, and Hitchcock’s magazines in the same year. And she has done that four or five different years now.
She has also been nominated and won a ton of awards across a bunch of genres for her short fiction. She has won awards like the Hugo Award, the Ellery Queen Award, and who knows how many Asimov’s Reader’s Choice Awards.
And she has been nominated for dozens and dozens of other awards for her short fiction. And on top of that, she is an award-winning short fiction editor and the former editor of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction.
So with short fiction being so important these days, and Kris teaching it, somehow there are still three spots open in the short story workshop.
Color me totally surprised.
When I was a young writer, I would have done almost anything to learn from someone at Kris’s level. And I did. Many, many times.
And so did Kris.
So if you are interested in learning the craft of writing short fiction from the best in the business, spend five days at it in April working hard on your writing, then write me.
I can promise that you will be glad you made it.
