Mark yer calendars. . .

I’ve just committed to appear at ZomBCon 2011 in Seattle, this coming October 21-23.  Last year’s ZomBcon was really wonderful– exciting, fun, galvanizing. . . and very, very well-run.  And I expect 2011 to be even better!  It sounds like they’ve got a new, larger venue, and a bunch of new guests for 2011 including TomContinue reading “Mark yer calendars. . .”

Why are writers’ retreats boring?

In my recent profile in Grub Street, I alluded to applying for (and failing to receive) a fellowship at the prestigious Hawthornden Castle Retreat for Writers.  This was the first time I’d applied for a fellowship at a writers’ retreat.  I wanted to go to Hawthornden because you get to write for a month in a Scottish castleContinue reading “Why are writers’ retreats boring?”
