A recent post on Nancy Kress' blog alerted my to the fact that there is now a "Virtual" version of Clarion (the premier spec fic writer's workshop) on the web. Virtual Clarion is an online-only critique group that you can pay to join, and then your fee goes to support the live version.
Speaking of the live version, Neil Gaiman is on the faculty list for 2008! Whoo hoo! Makes me wanna dump the husband and the pets and head to San Diego!
So do you suppose the virtual version teaches you to write for virtual publications? -)
