About the Science Fiction Writing Workshops:
The Sci-Fi portion of ASO will function to help writers become better craftsmen of science fiction through workshop interactions. Participants will also have the opportunity to sit in on personal readings by other published writers, Q & A sessions, and lectures on story development.
There will be two options for Workshops. One workshop will be a group free writing exercise based off of a prompt. Another workshop will be devoted to reviewing your work. How can you get involved? When you register for ASO, there is an option to include a word doc.
All workshops will be overseen by University of Alabama MFA student volunteers.
A Space Oddity is privileged to feature participating authors, Jack McDevitt, Joanne Merriam, Lou Anders, and David C. Kopaska-Merkel
