Orson Card’s Literary Boot Camp

Posted by John Brown on February 3rd, 2014

Just apply already!

Orson Card has just announced the dates and location for this year’s literary boot camp. This one is in North Carolina. Card usually usually holds a session in the west every other year. But here’s the deal: east or west, if you are a new writer, this is THE workshop to attend. It is hands-down THE best workshop I have ever attended.

If you want to learn how to write fiction from one of the masters, you will apply (the boot camp is limited to 12 people) and then do whatever it takes to attend if you’re selected.  The two day writing class is also great. I don’t know that I would spend hundreds of dollars to fly in for that, but I would and did spend hundreds to attend the boot camp (way back in ye year 2002).

    Ah, but that’s where I firmly believe you would be wrong :) From my interactions with Card and what I’ve observed with how he reacts with others, he’s a most welcoming guy. Even when folks disagree with his political ideas. But there will be no time for political tangents anyway. At least, there wasn’t during the one I attended. There was far too much to learn about writing.
