Superstars Writing Seminar’s Panel on Editors

We’re back! Technical difficulties (gorillas and alligators) aside, and best forgotten about.

This week we have something different, and special for you. I was asked to moderate and speak on a panel titled “The Importance of an Editor” on Feb. 7th at the Superstars Writing Seminar held by Kevin J. Anderson, Rebecca Moesta, David Farland, Eric Flint, Brandon Sanderson, and most recently joined by James A. Owen.

It is the most comprehensive seminar for writers about the business of writing available, held every year in Colorado Springs. Jordan, Moses, and I are all alumni, and I can’t recommend it highly enough. The information and the access to New York Times best-selling authors and guest speakers can create contacts and ins into the business that are hard to duplicate.

Next year Hugh Howey and Baen editor n’ chief, Toni Weisskopf, will join the crew as guest speakers.

With permission, here is that panel discussion.

Writing Workshops

This week on Hide and Create Diana Rowland, Joshua Essoe, Moses Siregar, and Jordan Ellinger discuss workshops for writers. We cover everything from Writing Superstars to the Clarions, and Writers of the Future. Mainly, we focus on the different types of workshops (those geared to improve your writing vs those designed to teach you the business of writing), and share a few stories about our own workshop experiences.
