Alpha Young Writers Workshop

George asked me to let you guys know about this while he parties with movie stars at the Golden Globes.

George has donated a number of autographed copies of his books to this charity for their auction. If you want to get a signed book and contribute to a worthy cause at the same time, check them out. Their official information is below:

The Alpha SF/F/H Workshop for Young Writers [http://alpha.spellcaster.org ] (ages 14-19) will be held July 18-27, 2012 in Pittsburgh, PA. At Alpha, students can meet others who share their interest in writing science fiction, fantasy, and horror. They can learn about writing and publishing from guest authors, including Tamora Pierce and Kij Johnson. Also, they will write and revise a short story during the workshop. Applications are due March 1, 2012.

Go help support a new generation of genre writers.

Can't they just raise the age limit to 25? ;___; I want to go to a workshop with Tamora Pierce!

Actually, if you're near Syracuse or in a city where Tamora Pierce is attending a convention this year, lunch or dinner with her is one of the auction items. I'm one of the organizers of the auction, so I just thought I'd mention it. :)

My sister is a graduate of Alpha and I know many of the people involved in the workshop. It's a wonderful program and worthy of support. :)
