The Workshop is a great experience, intended especially for writers who have just begun to publish or who need that final bit of insight or skill to become a published writer. We work with all brands of speculative fiction, including horror, fantasy, magical realism, slipstream, speculative philosophy, hard SF, and so on, and it's a wonderful way to bond with fellow writers in a friendly and dedicated atmosphere. Plus we go out to dinner every night at a different restaurant in lovely downtown Lawrence, KS, watch lots of (usually bad) SF film, and write our brains out.
Starting last year, it's also available for graduate credit through the University of Kansas (ENGL 757). If you're a KU student, perfect! If not but you wish to take the Workshop for credit, be sure to contact us right away for how to make that happen. Most attendees, however, simply enroll as a normal, professional workshop rather than for credit.
Interested? We are open for applications right now through June 1, but sooner is better as we usually fill early. See the website for details.
