I apologize for not posting here a lot lately — I’ve been very busy teaching this past year, and I’ll be busy teaching all over again in the month to come, for a number of genre fiction-focused writing workshops. I’ll be running my “Atmosphere in Horror and Fantasy” course in the MFA program in Writing Popular Fiction at Seton Hill University next week, followed by a fun guest lecture on “Making the Reader Squirm” at the acclaimed Odyssey Fantasy Writing Workshop the week after that, then running some workshops on writing uncanny scenes at Alpha: The SF/F/H Writing Workshop for Young Authors in July just to top it all off. Busy days ahead!
All of these are only open for registered students only, but Alpha is hosting a free public reading/signing with myself, Holly Black and Tamora Pierce at the Barnes & Noble bookstore in Greensburg, PA on Tuesday, July 20th at 7:30 pm.
[Are you a writer, but can’t attend a workshop? You’ll want to read the Stoker Award-winning book, Writer’s Workshop of Horror!]
