Upcoming Appearances

So I've got a couple of interesting appearances lined up for September. On Saturday, September 16th, along with Jack Fischer, former publisher/editor of the defunct Flesh & Blood Magazine, I'll be putting in an appearance with the Garden State Horror Writers Association. The topic? Cover letters! Since this is a workshop format I'm pretty stoked to be teaching here. I've done Odyssey and Orson Scott Card's Boot Camp, so it's nice to have the opportunity to pay it forward, even a little. Of course, I had always pictured myself doing this as a hugely successful writer instead of as an editor. :) But I also never expected to be teaching at a speculative writing workshop while I was still in my twenties. So I guess I'll make the trade.

As to my other appearance, on Saturday, September 23rd, along with John Joseph Adams, the assistant editor at The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, I'll be appearing on Jim Freund's speculative radio show, "Hour of the Wolf." The subject? What else? Slush! I believe we air at 5:00 a.m., and the station (broadcasting from NYC to those of you in range) is 99.5 FM. If I have any of these details wrong I'll certainly post again.

Hope to see some of you at the first thing, and everyone who can should listen to the second one!
