I volunteered to be the new Workshop Scheduler for RWA’s Fantasy, Futuristic, and Paranormal chapter — FF&P. This means that I’m the person who will be scouting out neat, new workshops for FF&P to offer to members and non-members alike.
What is FF&P looking for?
We are looking for workshops that will appeal to fiction writers in general, not just writers who write in speculative or romance genres (e.g. craft, business, inspiration, writing life, research… character development, worldbuilding, three act structure, GMC… online marketing, social media, self-publishing, traditional publishing, hybrid options… designing your own covers, hiring your own editors… querying, submitting, conferences… fan conventions… book signings, personal events… etc.!) but, of course, we also love workshops that are geared toward our favorite subgenres: fantasy, futuristic, SFR, PNR, UF, steampunk, time travel, and young adult fiction with speculative elements.
If you are an instructor who is currently offering workshops, please consider submitting a workshop proposal to me (use my “Contact” page or email me: archer at jillarcher dot com) and include the following:
- Your name and online contact information
- The title and duration of the workshop
- A brief description of the proposed workshop
- Whether you’ve taught the workshop before and, if so, where
- Your bio
If you’re interested in seeing what type of workshops FF&P currently has scheduled, check out the line up here. (I’m also going to do a second post today listing a couple of March workshops that are being offered).
Finally, even if you aren’t an instructor, please let me know in the comments or send an email if you have any fantastic workshops to recommend.
Please forward this post to anyone who might be interested.
