Help Kickstart The Writers' Workshop of Science Fiction and Fantasy

The Writers’ Workshop of Science Fiction and Fantasy is a collection of essays and interviews with some of most influential names in the industry; each article covering a specific element of the craft of writing science fiction and fantasy.  The collaborators in this wonderful anthology include:

  • Lou Anders – “Nebulous Matters, or Speculations on Subgenre.”
  • Lucy Snyder – “Ursula K. LeGuin Talks About A Lifetime in the Craft.”
  • James Gunn – “Beginnings.”
  • George Zebrowski – “Middles.”
  • Jay Lake – “Endings.”
  • Nayad Monroe – “Tim Powers Talks About Writing Supernatural Awe and More.”
  • Pam Sargent – “Talking Too Much, or Not Enough: Dialogue in Science Fiction and Fantasy.”
  • Geoff Fuller -- “How Alien the Alien: A Primer on Viewpoint.”
  • Nancy Kress – “The Green-Skinned Zorn Laughed With Grief: Character and Emotion in Science Fiction and Fantasy.”
  • Harry Turtledove – “Alternate History: the How-To of What Might Have Been.”
  • Kelly Green – “Larry Niven Talks About the Collaborative Process.”
  • Joe Haldeman – “Hemingway Talks About Writing.”
  • Nisi Shawl – “Unbending Gender.”
  • Alan Dean Foster – “Reverse Engineering: Writing Novelizations.”
  • Alethea Kontis – “Kevin J. Anderson Talks About Spin-off Novels and Prequels.”
  • Elizabeth Bear -- “Tactics of Worldbuilding.”
  • Jackie Gamber–”Ann and Jeff Vandermeer Talk About Weird Fiction”
  • Michael Knost – Short fiction editors Ellen Datlow, Stanley Schmidt, Gordon Van Gelder, James Patrick Kelly, Mike Resnick, and John Joseph Adams discuss what they are looking for when reading submissions.

Bram Stoker Award-winning Editor Michael Knost is giving Seventh Star Press a chance to release this amazing book for writers, but it requires additional resources that they have to try and raise, hence the Kickstarter campaign.
