Jody will once again be offering a two-day science fiction and fantasy writers workshop at DragonCon, over Labor Day weekend in Atlanta, GA. Among the subjects to be covered during the two-day course (Thursday 8/30/12 and Friday 8/31/12) are story structure, character development, world-building, narrative hook, research, description, collaboration, nonfiction, format, the business of writing, marketing and promotion.
Guest lecturers will speak during the course on topics involving their expertise. Signed up for this year are Todd McCaffrey (co-author, Dragonriders of Pern), David Gerrold (“The Trouble with Tribbles,” The Martian Child), and Toni Weisskopf (Publisher, Baen Books).
The students are encouraged to ask questions after the experts’ presentations. The aim of this workshop is to help aspiring writers to learn to practice their craft at a professional level. Students of every level are welcome, from beginners to those writers who are starting to sell their work. For more information and to sign up, please visit the description on the DragonCon website.
