Event Description

6-Week Writing Challenge

The “what-if” class, author Betsy James’s favorite. As the year turns toward darkness and the return of light, what better time to invite worlds that push the envelope—on or off planet, in or out of time? Speculative fiction—the umbrella term for science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, alternative history, horror —is the world’s oldest literature, and currently it’s evolving at a spectacular rate.

Join spec fic author Betsy James for six outside-the-box weeks of assignments designed to find your stories and set them in motion. Each will be a maximum of 1000 words, followed by respectful peer critique, a mini-lesson and professional-level editorial feedback. Limited to 10 students; sign up early.

Betsy James is the author and illustrator of sixteen books for adults and children. Among other honors, her books have been named: New York Public Library Best Book for Teens; Voices of Youth Advocates Best Book; Junior Library Guild Selection; Canadian Children’s Book Center Best Book; International Reading Association Children’s Choice; and Tiptree Award Honor Book. She leads workshops nationally and internationally. She lives in the North Valley. Visit her at http://www.listeningatthegate.com.
