Nick Mamatas's Workshop (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Panelists: Nick Mamatas 'If you don't use your imagination someone else will use it for you.'óRonald Sukenick
In SF/F a good idea can go a long way, but often the first ideas we think of for a story or novel are well-worn, and are probably already in the slush pile with another author's name on it. In this brief workshop, writers will be exposed to a stimulus and together with facilitator Nick Mamatas will generate three ideas and write a flash fiction based on a common theme. Participants will practice the skills needed to use their own imaginations, rather than having them used by "someone else." (Full)
