Taos Toolbox Is Looking for Applications

Taos Toolbox is looking for more applications to its summer workshop so that it can fill the number of student slots it needs to keep going.

Taos Toolbox will be a "graduate" workshop designed to bring your science fiction and fantasy writing to the next level. If you've sold a few stories and then stalled out, or if you've been to Clarion or Odyssey and want to re-connect with the workshop community, this is the workshop for you!

This is not a workshop for beginners. We won't teach you correct manuscript format or what an adverb is and why you shouldn't use one, because we'll assume that you already know. We want to concentrate on giving talented, burgeoning writers the information necessary to become professionals within the science fiction and fantasy field.

Though short fiction will be enthusiastically received, there will be an emphasis at Taos Toolbox on the craft of the novel, with attention given to such vital topics as plotting, pacing, and selling full-length works.

Tuition is $3000 for tuition and most meals, including boarding in a ski lodge. The class lasts from June 6-19. If you've been considering applying, this might be a good year.
