The fabulous Alpha SF/F/H Workshop for Young Writers (ages 14-19) will be held July 18-27, 2012 in Pittsburgh, PA. At Alpha, students can meet others who share their interest in writing science fiction, fantasy, and horror. They can learn about writing and publishing from guest authors, including Tamora Pierce and Kij Johnson. Also, they will write and revise a short story during the workshop. Applications are due March 1, 2012.
The workshop is currently holding a fundraising auction, where you can bid on items from Ellen Kushner, John Joseph Adams, Elizabeth Bear, Theodora Goss, and many more, including me!
