Workshop Update

The late deadline for submissions to our Writers Workshop at Norwescon passed at midnight on New Years Eve.  We did minimal advertising for the workshop this year but still have a bumper crop of submissions: 35 in total. Most actually arrived by the priority deadline on December 19.  This year, we have a record 17 novel excerpts.  Submissions are about evenly split between fantasy and SF, with a handful of horror manuscripts.

Over the next week or so, we will be assigning 1 Fairwood group member as a panel moderator and critiquer, and 3 professional volunteers as critiquers. We'll sit down with the head of programming in a few weeks to schedule each session into a room and timeslot.

If you submitted a manuscript for the first time, congratulations! It takes courage to share your work with others and ask for critique.
