SOMETHING NEW THIS WAY COMES!

Postby Wulf Moon » Sun Feb 16, 2020 6:05 pm

Joni took me to lunch at Superstars and said it's no longer a secret, so of course I'm going to tell you! Writers of the Future will be announcing a new program at the gala this year. They will be offering a course of writing classes for free, in video form, with Tim Powers, Orson Scott Card, and David Farland! You get to learn from the best on how to write professional stories!

Another wonderful gift to help aspiring writers from Writers of the Future!

Cool, huh? Be sure to tune in to the gala on April 3rd to find out more!

Cheers!

Wonderful! WoTF really is serious when they say that they want us to succeed as well as to write good stories.

At LTUE, Joni was handing out the writers hint booklet to those of us who pre-ordered volume 36. She emailed my copy. Be sure and get yours. Email her a copy of your receipt.

What crlisle is talking about is if you preorder Volume 36 and email Joni your receipt, she'll email you a writing tips booklet with articles by Frank Herbert, Anne McCaffrey, and other WotF judges. A bonus for helping with the launch!

Yes, from any book ordering site, like Galaxy Press, Amazon, etc. Just send Joni a copy of the receipt, and you'll get the writing tips booklet. It's really nice.

Will this be a reproduction of the workshop writers normally get to attempt if they win the contest?

I doubt it. At the WotF Workshop, they assume you already know how to write--as OSC says, "You won the contest." So WotF Workshop focuses on building a career as an author and what to do next. I believe these instructional videos are going to be on how to write, the craft of writing.

We shall soon see!

I just got off the phone with John Goodwin. He said they are releasing the writing course videos by Orscon Scott Card, Tim Powers, and David Farland in about two weeks! I assume these will be linked to their homepage. Coming soon!

We're doing the test run on the online course next week, and then video interviews by the first guinea pigs through it early the following week. Oink! It's almost here!

I feel like that woman from those commercials some years ago, 'open, open, open' while she taps the glass :)
