Paradise Icon 2

Last year at Icon, we held our first Paradise Icon, an event that is a writer’s workshop, an education day, and a chance to attend a science fiction convention. We’re going to do it again.


This year at Icon 38, from November 15-17, we will be holding Paradise Icon 2! Our guest lecturers (so far) are Nancy Kress, Greg Frost, and Ellen Datlow. We may add one more to the schedule. On Friday, we workshop. On Saturday, we listen to lectures and ask questions. Sometime on Saturday, we get to read our own work.

If PI2 sounds like something you’d like to do, let me know. You do need to be a Journeyman writer–someone who has attended Clarion, Viable Paradise, Odyssey, Taos Toolbox, Orson Scott Card’s Bootcamp, something like that. OR you need to send me a piece that I can evaluate that makes sure you’re about that level.


The cost for the event is $100. That gets you the workshop and the convention, plus valuable face time with some of our attending pros. Icon also has a very nice con suite.

Some of you are eager to pay and come. Register for Paradise Icon now on the Icon Registration Page!

Let me know if you have any questions. Membership is capped at 18. Hope to see you there.
