Pages of interest for writers
- Visit the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America
(SFWA) page. There are lots of interesting articles here, as well as links to helpful sites all over the web.
An especially helpful section at this site is the "Writer Beware"
page, where information is freely available on scam agents and scam
publishers, who ruthlessly prey on new writers.
- Visit Speculations, the magazine "for writers who want to be read". They not only have information of interest and helpful links, not only do they have the most up to date market news for speculative fiction markets going, not only do they publish one of the best magazines around for new writers trying to break into the business, but they also have many, many online discussions going on at the Rumor Mill about various aspects of the SF/F/H markets. Check them out.
- Visit Ralan
Conley's market listings for what is, probably, the most up-to-date and
comprehensive market listing of science fiction and fantasy genre markets out
there at this time.
The small press
publishers listed below are ones where you can find a variety of works
which appeal to writers and/or fans of science fiction/fantasy. Some
of these works are reissues of out-of-print works by established
authors. Some of these are nifty-cool-peachy keen books that can be
of help to newer writers. All of them deserve your patronage.
Since 1993, I've worked with
two different writing workshop groups, both rather informal. One is
on line, and the other meets at regular intervals in the greater San
Francisco Bay area.
The IMPs of CompuServe. They're the first writing workshop group I participated in.
I used to maintain a page with links to the websites of other IMPs, but on a
recent test, most of the pages no longer worked. The IMPs are still
active in the CompuServe
SF Literature forum. As anybody can sign up for a CompuServe access without subscribing
(i.e. free), do check them out. If you already have either an AOL
account or an AOL Instant Messenger ID, or a Netscape User ID, you can use
those to log in without setting up a whole new login, as AOL owns all of the
above. If you don't mind working with an online crit group, but have avoided
Critters because it's so awesomely huge, try the IMPs.
Ad Hoc Writers. This is the writer's group I've been working with the last few years.
It is local to the San Francisco Bay Area. We have members from San Francisco to San Jose.
- Whensday People. I've been working with this
group for the last 3 years, off and on (mostly off during one period of 3-4
months when I have a heavy-duty contract job), but it's an interesting group
to be part of. Of the current active membership, we have three writers
who have been published in short stories (one of whom has been a Hugo
nominee), one newspaper columnist, and, temporarily inactive, one who had a
couple of novels published in the 1990s.
