Also: I will be a guest lecturer at the Odyssey writer’s workshop in Manchester, NH in July. The deadline for applications to Odyssey is April 13th. The director, Jeanne Cavelos, is a great teacher (I should know — she edited my first novel, Grave Markings, for Dell Books!). Here is some information about Odyssey:
Odyssey is an intensive six-week workshop for writers of fantasy, science fiction, and horror held each summer at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, NH. Developing writers aged 17-65 apply from all over the world. Sixteen are admitted, and over 50% of graduates go on to be published. Director Jeanne Cavelos is a best-selling author and former senior editor at Bantam Doubleday Dell, where she won the World Fantasy Award for her work. Top writers, editors, and agents in the field serve as guest lecturers. This summer, the workshop runs from June 11-July 20. Our writer-in-residence is Nina Kiriki Hoffman, and guest lecturers include Michael A. Burstein, Rodman Philbrick, Elizabeth Hand, John Clute, Michael A. Arnzen, and George
Scithers. The application deadline is April 13. More information is available at www.odysseyworkshop .org.
In other news, Doorways magazine is now out and their debut looks pretty sharp. I’m featured poet in this issue, which also includes stories by Jack Ketchum, Graham Materton, Sephera Giron, and many more.
