Hi, y'all - I just wanted to pop back into Livejournal because the WisCon Writers' Workshop has always meant so much to me and so has LJ and now I'm running the Workshop (can LJ be far behind).
Basically, there are big changes this year! There are some new group leaders (watch the blog!), and it's going to be very fantastic to work with them. And there are also some special sections because it was time to try something new. There are blog entries going up about all of these but I wanted to give LJ (and Dreamwidth) folks a crack at things before the general blog-readers just because I'm so excited.
This year there will be: comic writing (it's a how-to)! video game writing (it's another how-to)! post-colonialist steampunk (special emphasis on non-white, non-Western narratives)! paranormal/sci fi/fantasy romance/erotica (focused on balancing sex with plot and great sex scenes)!
And, just in case that weren't enough, there are three sections devoted to fan fic! One is a general beta-reading section and the other two are special topics that will work a little more like discussions with some exercises thrown in.
If you want to get involved, now is most definitely the time.
