Applications are open for the 17th annual Alpha Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Workshop for Young Writers! This workshop guides young writers, ages 14 – 19, through the writing and publishing process. At Alpha, attendees take a story from its initial concept to a complete draft, receiving feedback and mentorship from Alpha’s staff and a roster of guest authors.
The workshop runs this summer, from July 25th – August 5th, at the University of Pittsburgh’s Greensburg Campus. Tamora Pierce will be in attendance, along with N. K. Jemisin, Mary Robinette Kowal, and Maggie Stiefvater.
Applications for this year’s Alpha workshop are due by March 4, 2018, so be sure to get yours in on time!
