Today’s post was delayed because I wanted to be able to give you guys a full update, which wasn’t possible until I just got off the phone. As some of you may have known, I’ve started a website called The Speculative Craft, which launches next month, focused on the craft of writing science fiction, fantasy, [insert here]-punk, and every other form of speculative fiction you can think of. It will feature craft articles, interviews, journal spotlights, and classroom resources to help facilitate the teaching of speculative fiction in the classroom.
I can now inform you that the first edition will contain an interview with none other than Tamora Pierce, author of the Tortall and Emelan series, on how she approaches writing, and a spotlight on Black Treacle, a fantastic online journal. Now, if you have subscribed to the mailing list, you’ll get these awesome things on May 15th. However, if you haven’t subscribed, you’ll see this content go up on our website on June 1st. Which means you should probably subscribe now to find out what Ms. Pierce said, just that much sooner!
