Viable Paradise is open for applications!

Viable Paradise has opened for applications. The great Kate Salter, wonderful master organizer, talks about it here. Elizabeth Bear, excellent instructor, also sells it.

Here's some features I'll add to their lists:
- A trip to the Bite for delicious fried treats (hopefully)!
- A group Shakespeare performance fueled by beer! Hilarity Will Ensue! (I guarantee it).
- Late nights writing, and talking about writing, and being incredibly nerdy with other sci-fi people who love writing.

And if you're lucky, Bear will take you out to the woodshed (well, beach) and give your writing a good scouring with the Brillo pad. It will be worth it. Trust me.

VP is a writerly-life-changing experience. I will be processing what I learned there for, well, years to come. I have a great new tribe of writer friends. I know it made me a better writer (or will, eventually). I am ever so glad I went.

Index of extensive VP blogging here.

It was indeed the workshop I was looking for.
