Here’s the most recent class listing and important news about the Writing F&SF Stories and Advanced Story workshops.
I will be offering two sections of the Writing F&SF workshop and one of the Advanced Story Workshop, but they are dependent on getting at least five students in order to make it financially feasible for me.

Expressing interest does not commit you, but lets me gauge whether or not there is enough interest in a date/time slot to make it viable. You will not need to pay until the week before the class starts; the overall workshops will be six two or two and a half hour sessions, depending on the number of students enrolled.

There are more ghosts in the ocean than anywhere else, but that is because it is so very large, and most of them are fish and gulls, whose ghosts pay no attention to humans.
Okay, folks, limited sessions, but a chance for a free one! Because my time is scarce, I’ve picked my favorite classes to teach and limited it to those. In July/August, I’ll start doing extended basic and advanced workshops again. (June … Continue reading
Time is fleeting, and December is rolling along. Here at the writing retreat I’m on this week, I’ve finished one story and a couple of flash pieces and am well on the way to finishing up “Carpe Glitter”. I hope … Continue reading
I’ve been having enough fun with the free version of Powtoons that I’m thinking about upgrading. Here’s a video for the flash fiction that I’m 90% happy with. Please like it or share it if you enjoy it.
My schedule for Norwescon 35’s last day, and details on upcoming classes.
I really like this flash piece. It’s lovely and sweet. “Beholder” by Sarah Grey on Flash Fiction Online. Another flash piece, this time from the inimitable Folly Blaine, Scattered.
