Current Scratch: Join Us, SCBWI Winter Con, Opportunities, Interesting Stuff, & BV SCBWI Lineup

Howdy, folks! Hope your writerly and / or artsy projects are springing to life!


From alternative history to post-apocalyptic futures, speculative fiction covers a wide range of genres. Join us as we explore the possibilities at our Schmooze on Wednesday, February 26, at 10 a.m. in the College Station Barnes & Noble.

Then plan to learn more at "Writing Speculative Fiction for Kids and Teens," a morning workshop on March 22 with acclaimed fantasy author Martha Wells. She will offer her expert overview of speculative fiction, including tips, resources, exercises and practical advice. Bring your questions for a time of Q&A. Copies of Martha’s books will be available for purchase—cash or check only. We look forward to seeing you!

Registration for the workshop is $20 for SCBWI members or $25 for non-members. Seating is limited. Please let us know you are coming by emailing brazosvalley@scbwi.org and then paying at the door.

Martha Wells (www.marthawells.com) is the author of a number of fantasy novels, including her YA fantasy, Emilie and the Hollow World, which was published by Angry Robot/Strange Chemistry in April 2013, and the sequel, Emilie and the Sky World, which will be out in March 2014.
