Odyssey Writing Workshop Launches Blog
On February 1, the Odyssey Writing Workshop launched a blog for writers of fantasy, science fiction, and horror at http://odysseyworkshop.livejournal.com/. Weekly posts will provide valuable insights into the writing process and the publishing industry. They will include
*Interviews with award-winning and bestselling authors who have served as Odyssey guest lecturers, discussing their writing processes, their writing weaknesses and how they overcame them, and their experiences in publishing.
*Writing and publishing tips from Odyssey director Jeanne Cavelos.
*Profiles of Odyssey graduates, covering their writing struggles and triumphs, and the most useful advice they've received.
*News of sales and publications by Odyssey graduates, with some accounts of how they made those sales.
*Alerts for new podcasts and articles on the Odyssey Web site.
*Round ups in which multiple authors provide their best answers to a monthly "Writing Question."
The February interview will be with New York Times bestselling author Carrie Vaughn. Carrie is a graduate of Odyssey 1998 and will be serving as writer-in-residence at Odyssey 2009.
Odyssey invites writers and readers of fantasy, science fiction, and horror to "friend" our LiveJournal and leave comments.
