About

$1,621

This year, I had the good fortune to be accepted to the Clarion Writers Workshop at USCD in California. The workshop brings together 18 students and 6 working professionals to write and critique work for six weeks of intensive work.

Each week we write at least one story (I plan to write at least three) and present it for critique to the group.  I intend to make a book of the best my Clarion stories and publish them as an ebook and in trade paperback.  Money from this project will cover the editing, cover art, and printing costs, as well as help me pay for Clarion.

Each story will be a fantasy or science fiction tale.  The title of the collection is "Souvenirs from Other Worlds".  Here's the cover for the ebook edition:

The book will have at least 10 short stories in it, all written during the six weeks I am at Clarion.

Thank you!
