Private Writers' Workshop

Summary. Boskone 39 will host the popular private writers' workshop (run along Clarion lines) organized by David Alexander Smith, where the works of 3-5 amateur writers are critiqued by the participants and by 1-2 professional writers who are members of the Cambridge Science Fiction Workshop (CSFW).

Who Should Apply. Serious amateur or newly professional writers who are curious about workshops, have work they want to improve, and are willing to devote a fair amount of time before and during the con.

How To Apply. To apply, submit up to 7,500 words of fiction (a self-contained short story, chapters from a novel, or an outline). Email submissions are strongly preferred. Submissions are open from now through two weeks before the con (that is, midnight February 1, 2002). When in doubt, send an email query. Those selected to be in the workshop will be notified and provided with a list of the other attendees, a summary of workshop procedures, and other background.

At the Con. The workshop will run 3½ to 4 hours (starting on Sunday morning beginning at 8:30am). David Alexander Smith will organize and moderate the workshop. The other pros will be members of the Cambridge Science Fiction Workshop, a long-running Clarion-style workshop whose other current members include:

Bill Betcher Alex Irvine James Patrick Kelly
Shariann Lewitt Steven Popkes Sarah Smith
