Futurescapes Reflections

I was lucky enough to spend a few days at Sundance Resort this past April as a resident of the 2018 Futurescapes Workshop.  We had at least three seasons over those three days.  The workshop was an opportunity to discuss craft and make connections with other speculative fiction writers.  I had the beginning of my novel-in-progress critiqued by a group led by DongWon Song, discussed query letters with a group led by Thao Le, and reviewed novel outlines with a group led by Fran Wilde.

The workshop held important moments outside of those formal activities too—an opportunity to play The Fall of Magic with Daniel & Lydia, beer-fueled discussions about writing with Jiovanna & Tiffany, general discussions essential to future American-Canadian writing retreat relations with Colleen, and many other lovely interactions with folks who also happened to have read all of the same books.
