Walter's Toolbox Opens Again

New Mexico is the Land of Enchantment, and the little mountain city of Taos is one of its most enchanting spots... and a great spot for aspiring authors to sharpen their literary skills.

Taos is where my friend Walter Jon Williams hold his annual "graduate level" writing workshop, the Taos Toolbox. There are a number of great workshops for writers just starting out -- Clarion, Clarion West, and Odyssey, to name three -- but the Toolbox is a little different, intended for writers who have already gone to one or more of those and maybe made a few sales. The next step in building a career in our genre.

This year's faculty includes Walter Jon himself -- author of DAYS OF ATONEMENT, HARDWIRED, The Praxis series, and many many more, and creator of Golden Boy, Modular Man, Black Shadow, and Gordon the Ghoul for the Wild Cards series -- and Nancy Kress. Guest lecturers and scheduled visitors will include E.M. Tippetts, Steven Gould, and myself (Walter has promised to buy me dinner).

Taos Toolbox will make you a huge bestselling author. Or not. But what the hell, Taos is lovely, and the food is really really good.

I love Taos
Spent a week up in the ski valley there on my honeymoon. Had some of the best green chili soup in Taos proper as well.

Fourteen years is a long time and they've renamed The Inn At Snakedance where we stayed... a name I always thought was superb... But I've been looking for an excuse to go back. I'll have to plan ahead for one of these some time.

As with most things, thanks to you... for the head's up in this case... and for supporting others and lending awareness with your notoriety.
