Thanks again for everybody's good wishes on Troyce's job interview. He thought he did really well, so we'll just have to wait and see.

I have to take Tasha to the vet this morning for her yearly exam, so let's hope that doesn't turn into a prolonged and exciting-in-the-bad-way experience.

They didn't have cool things like this when I was a kid:
Shared Worlds Teen Writing Camp: Registration Now Open
Registration is now open for the 2010 teen science fiction/fantasy writing camp Shared Worlds. Shared Worlds is a unique two-week inter-disciplinary experience on beautiful Wofford campus in Spartanburg, South Carolina. (It’s also fun!) A number of scholarships will be made available. The official sponsors of the camp include Tor Books, Wizards of the Coast LLC, and Realms of Fantasy. SF Signal and io9 have also provided support.

Instructors for 2010 will include Spiderwick Chronicles creator Holly Black, critically acclaimed YA and adult authors Kathe Koja and Marly Youmans, Nebula Award winner Michael Bishop, writer and gaming expert Will Hindmarch, and World Fantasy Award winner Jeff VanderMeer, plus Wofford College’s own Dr. Christine Dinkins, philosophy professor, and Jeremy Jones, lecturer and camp director. Artist Scott Eagle will also conduct a workshop during the camp. Although the full 2011 roster will be announced later, Shared Worlds is pleased to note that Philip K. Dick Award finalist Minister Faust and Nnedi Okorafor, winner of the Wole Soyinka Prize for Literature for her novel Zahrah the Windseeker, have both accepted invitations to attend as visiting writers.

That camp sounds amazing! And I hope all goes well at the vet!

From the photos and reports about last year, the camp is a huge amount of fun for everybody involved.

Wow. They didn't have stuff like that when I was a kid, either. I wonder what would have happened if they had...

Yep, this is a great idea, and I hope they keep doing it. I wish they had a version for adults!

Do Odyssey and Clarion not count? ;) I guess they don't have the shared worldbuilding aspect, but they do seem kinda like the grown-up versions of writing camp...

Maybe someone should start a grown-up shared-world writers camp. ;D
