Today I was on Scott's blog and discovered something really cool: a SF/Fantasy writer's workshop for teens! It's called ALPHA. Their website says:
Does that sound like you? Would you like to study writing under Michael A. Arnzen, Christopher McKitterick, Timothy Zahn, or Tamora Pierce? That's right, I said TAMORA PIERCE! Well then, what are you waiting for, go to the Alpha website now for details!
The ALPHA SF/F/H Workshop for Young Writers (ages 14 - 19) will be held at the University of Pittsburgh’s Greensburg Campus July 16 - 25, 2008 in conjunction with Pittsburgh’s science fiction convention, Confluence, July 25 - 27th.
We’re looking for enthusiastic, talented young writers who have a strong interest in science fiction, fantasy and/or horror and a passion for writing.
Come spend ten days working with professional authors, each of whom will spend two days at the workshop.
