Taos Toolbox

Taos Toolbox takes place in June or July at the Snow Bear Ski Lodge in Taos Ski Valley. Originated by Walter John Williams, every year Nancy Kress and Walter teach students the tools they need to succeed in publishing. A different guest speaker joins them every year.

This page outlines the experience of Taos Toolbox 2012, with journal reflections and interviews from the participants.
