K Tempest Tumbles

I'm K. Tempest Bradford, a writer, blogger, tech geek, and all around nerd. I'm such a big science fiction/fantasy/speculative fiction fan that I even write it (I know, pretty hard core!).

I have a non-Tumblr blog and that's where the majority of my long-form posts go. This blog is for my more fannish activities, link sharing, and squeeness.

Announcing the Writing the Other Workshop and Retreat
Chattanooga, TN - June 9 - 15, 2014
Many authors struggle to write beyond what they know and write the other. While conventions are tackling this material, there is frequently not enough time to delve into this tricky and nuanced skill. The Writing the Other Workshop and Retreat is designed to have lessons and conversations at a more advanced level. By pairing it with a retreat, we give the participants an opportunity to work on projects in a nurturing environment. This week long event gives you one on one time with the instructors David Anthony Durham, Tempest Bradford, Mary Robinette Kowal, Nisi Shawl, and Cynthia Ward.
The week kicks off with three full days of classroom time, including breakout sessions, workshops, and writing exercises. The remainder of the week is time for you to put what you learned to good use, and write. Each day will have additional breakout groups as an opportunity for authors to ask questions specific to their projects.
Find more details here.
Registration opens at noon EST on Sunday October 13, 2013. There are 24 openings available.

    I want so badly to go, but that would kill my time off for the entire year, never mind budgeting. *whimpers*

    The plan is to make this an annual thing. If you’re still interested in 2015, hopefully we will be doing it again.
