A new contest for sci-fi/fantasy writers: Futurescapes writers’ workshop

Hi! Dominique Gibson is back with another post. I decided to give you an update on what’s going on considering I am not able to do any YouTube videos at this time to talk about what’s going on at the moment. I am pretty sure I will be able to do it sometime soon but I can’t do it at the moment (Which I am really sad about). So, I decided to do the next best thing and write a blog post about it.

So, I did something that I thought I wasn’t going to do this week but I decided to do it anyway just to see if I would actually be accepted into the workshop. I recently found this workshop on my Instagram page and decided that it was tempting enough to at lest give it a shot to see if I would get accepted into the workshop or not. The workshop is called the Futurescapes workshop and is pacifically for writers who write paranormal romance, fantasy, horror and sci-fi fiction. The reason why I was so attempted to do it was because of what it offered for two thousand to three thousand dollars. This workshop required the following:

  1. According to their website, it gives writers an “Unparalleled chance to work with top literary agents and authors in speculative fiction (Science fiction, fantasy, horror, and paranormal).” They have stated on their website that it’s been five years since they have done the last workshop and are excited to do it once more.
  2. This workshop states that the writer is going to be critiqued on a 200-page novel with detailed feedback and hours of mentorship with some of the best award winning writers in speculative fiction. Some of these writers are Hugo, Edgar, and world-fantasy authors and agents that will mentor these writers on their work.
  3. Has a 5:1 attendee ratio.

Unfortunately, in order for you to get this wonderful opportunity, you are going to have to pay between two thousand and three thousand dollars for the workshop and that’s only if you get accepted into the program. You have to send in the application first along with a writing sample of 1,500 words before the September 21st deadline. If you are interested in learning more about it, you can click here to their website for more information.

I have entered into this contest by submitting a sample from a self-published project I am doing now even though that is not going to be the story I workshop in the program. I do have a project that I am going to workshop if they decide to accept my application. If not, then I could always self-publish.

That’s it for now. See you soon.

My first love has always been writing since I was eight years old. After getting my Bachelor's Degree in Fiction Writing from Columbia College Chicago and struggling for years trying to get published the traditional way, I decided that the only way to promote my work was to promote myself which is why I am self-publishing my paranormal romance The Truson S.E.T. Series.
