Since I know I’ve got at least a couple of aspiring writers who read this blog, I thought I should pass along a reminder that the BayCon Writers’ Workshop submission deadline is April 15. For those who aren’t familiar with it, it’s a free workshop that the con has been doing for quite a while now, where they con (sorry, couldn’t resist) some of the professional writers who are attending to give a critique to aspiring writers. There’s a separate Teen Writers’ Workshop for the 14-17 crowd. If you’re in the Bay Area or were planning to travel to attend BayCon anyway, this is a great opportunity. And don’t wait until the last minute, because if there’s a shortage of writers willing to spend the time on the crits, it’s first-come, first-served!
