I'll post a few more times in the upcoming days about the workshop, but today I want to highlight the instructors that we had.
- Jeanne Cavelos is the director and founder. She's a writer and former editor and all around editing wizard.
- Gary Braunbeck, best known as a horror writer, was our writer-in-residence for the fifth week of the workshop. He was generous beyond belief with his time and an excellent lecturer.
- Christopher Golden, scheduled to be our first guest lecturer, needed to bow out for health reasons, and was replaced by Elaine Isaak, who gave an inspiring lecture on setting.
- Theodora Goss, former Odyssey participant, spoke about the importance of voice.
- Barry B. Longyear lectured on the importance of research and description.
- Elizabeth Bear's lecture focused on the different ways to plot a story.
- Our last guest lecturer, editor John Joseph Adams, shared his experience with genre short fiction markets.
