Still Time to Apply to Yale Writers' Conference

The application deadline has been extended to May 15. Info here.

I need one more person to sign up for my fun, intense Session II class, "Cross-Genre Fiction." I have four students but they need five to run it. (I'll be there in Session I regardless.) This class is for people who are crossing genre boundaries: mixing their straight fiction with elements of horror, sci-fi, romance, suspense, mystery, or anything else.

Even if your story does none of that and you'd like to study with me, feel free to join! Last year we had several stories with no genre elements. It really doesn't matter: the point is, it will be a good class and we'll critique each story on its own terms, whatever those are. We'll respect it for the unique thing it is and talk about how to make it even better.

I really don't want them to cut this great class, so if you know anyone who might be interested, please let them know! Use the CONTACT ME form on the right to get it touch and I'll happily answer your questions.

Session II is only four days: June 18—21, and half of it's on a weekend. You get to eat, sleep and study at Yale, use the beautiful Beinecke Library, and hang out at Mory's. The people are wonderful, and a lot of fun and bonding goes on.
