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.

Scholarship Opportunity for Writers of Color

Heads up, all! Registration for the second annual Out Of Excuses retreat opens tomorrow, January 18th, at 9am EST. The first retreat filled up within 9 minutes of registration opening. If you have the funds and are interested in spending a week learning from and hanging out with Dan Wells, Howard Tayler, Mary Robinette Kowal, and Brandon Sanderson, then have your finger hovering over the Register button at 8:55am.

However, that retreat does involve significant expense. If you are interested in going but know you can’t afford it, there is one other option. The Writing Excuses podcast team and the Carl Brandon Society just announced a scholarship for the retreat that will allow for one writer of color to attend. 

The deadline for applying to that scholarship is March 15th. Details here, overview below:

To Apply, submit

  1. A brief example of your writing, consisting of 1-3 separate pieces and totaling no more than 10,000 words.
  2. A 450-700 word personal essay explaining why you are a good candidate for the scholarship.
  3. Three brief letters of recommendation 

The scholarship selection will be based on both merit and need. Please see the website for full details, instructions, and selection panel.
