BSFS Writing Workshops Continue in 2013

The Baltimore Science Fiction Society is continuing its series of day-long sf/fantasy writing workshops in 2013. Jonathan Maberry, Morgan Keyes and Catherine Asaro each will lead one of the sessions.

The series resumes January 26 with Jonathan Maberry instructing on the topic "From Raw to Cooked: Professional Story Development," helping writers take an initial idea and develop it into a compelling framework for a novel. (This session is sold out.)

On June 15, Morgan Keyes will lecture about "The Business of Writing," touching on industry issues such as traditional versus self-publishing, the value of agents, the synopsis, and specific market concerns for genre writers.

On September 21, Dr. Catherine Asaro will discuss "Using Science in Science Fiction," for those writers who want to learn how to successfully integrate believable science into their fiction.

The workshop’s cost for each participant is $25, lunch included. Attendance is limited to 15 people. Contact BSFSEvents for more information, including how to submit payment.

The Baltimore Science Fiction Society is a 501(c)(3) literary organization focusing on science fiction, fantasy, and related genres.
