Subscription to All Study Along Workshops
Study Along with the Las Vegas Science Fiction Craft Workshop.
Study Along Workshops will allow writers to follow part of the intense craft workshops being held in Las Vegas, only online.
For those of you who do not know, Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Dean Wesley Smith both teach craft workshops in Las Vegas.
And we screen who we let in to make sure the intense work and pressure will not hurt anyone, but instead help them learn and advance their writing.
In 2022 we will have sixr craft workshops scheduled one every two months here in Las Vegas.
What happens, in general, at these workshops is that there is a reading list a few months ahead. Everyone must have it all read by the workshop.
Then two weeks ahead of the workshop or so you get a story assignment to a specific topic to write.
Then over the four days of the workshop here in Vegas, those online will get similar lectures and some assignments.
These are going to be fun.
Study Along Workshops
Since the in-person Vegas workshops are very limited many writers can't make the trip to Vegas for one reason or another. And the in-person workshops are far more expensive, with the $750 fee and also the travel and hotel costs.
So Kris and I came up with a way to allow writers of any skill level to study along. It won't be the full workshop by a long ways, but it will still be pretty nifty.
First, you will get the same reading list. Same deadline to get it all read.
You will get the first story assignment. It must be turned it at exactly the same time as the writers in Vegas will turn their stories in.
There will be short videos about the reading books that will be released a little each day. (Writers in Vegas will also have access to all this as well for review later.)
I will do a series of recorded videos that will be opened up each day talking about learning the topic of the workshop, similar to regular online workshops.
You will get the short story assignments and deadlines at exactly the same as the Vegas writers. I will respond to your short stories. Then I will do a short webinar for each short story assignment where I talk about the stories and the reason for the assignment.
Only the Vegas writers will get all the other craft assignments and hear lectures and how that all builds. And do Vegas field trips. But the Study Along students will get her comments recorded about each book in the reading list and my lectures on the topics plus comments on the stories and a webinar about the stories.
