Purple Mountain Majesties
I recently spent two weeks in a beautiful place, both mentally and physically. I was accepted (huzzah!) into Taos Toolbox, which was held in Angel Fire, New Mexico.
Walter Jon Williams organized the workshop. Nancy Kress co-taught brilliantly. We were treated to guest lectures and schmoozing with Steven Gould, E.M. Tippetts, and (damn, I buried the lede):
George R.R. Martin!
It was intense. Eighteen budding science fiction and fantasy authors from four countries wrote, read, attended classes, and/or critiqued each other’s work almost every hour we were awake.
I did sneak in some early morning walks and one hike. The above photo is your evidence.
I’ll share more about the workshop and some of the writers I met there in upcoming posts.
Happy Independence Day!
