SHARED WORLDS CAMP--now open for registration
Wofford is doing a Shared Worlds camp (link in blogger isn't working, so: http://www.woffordsharedworlds.org )--one of the coolest ideas in a long time. A multi-discipline approach to creativity, it's for rising 8th graders through 12th graders who want to spend a week creating their own world, with advice from visiting faculty (including myself, Stephen Leigh, and Christie Golden), along with guest speakers such as Greg Keyes, Jack McDevitt, Laura Resnick, and Scott Nicholson. Registration is now open. This is going to be so much fun. It's not just writers--it's video game creators, cartographers, you name it!
I'll be available to students in an advisory capacity and probably also doing a few extra things. I have a lecture on fantasy worldbuilding, for example.
Anyway, it's pretty reasonably priced and like I said--it's a wonderful concept in applied imagination. (Thanks to Dave Keck for giving me the info and Jeremy Jones for getting me involved.)
