Writers' Workshop

NOTE: The Writers' Workshop is now CLOSED

Our Writers' Workshop will be conducted by Mark Shepherd, author of several published science fiction and fantasy novels. Aspiring authors should submit samples of their work well in advance of the con, so Mark can read them before the con. The workshop at the con will consist of two parts: 1) the General Writing 101 information presented in a group format, and 2) some quality critique time, one on one between Mark and each workshop participant.

Mark is willing to review short stories/novelettes/novellas, novel outlines/sample chapters, and even novels. Mark's time is valuable, so we're putting limits on the number of submissions. The number of submissions received thus far is: 9

All workshop participants must be members of ArmadilloCon 20. (See the membership information page for current details.) If you want to participate, please submit your manuscript and a $5 handling fee no later than July 24, 1998 to the following address:

ArmadilloCon 20

Thanks for your interest. We're hoping this workshop will be helpful to prospective writers.
