She has taught various writing and editing fiction courses for twenty-two years through George Brown College in Toronto. Nancy will be teaching a four-hour course on Writing Vampire Fiction.
The Mistress of Ceremonies, Jo Fletcher, has worked as an editor of fantasy, SF and horror at such major UK publishers as Headline, Mandarin and Penguin Books. She is currently Associate Publisher of Gollancz, Orion’s award-winning fantasy and science fiction imprint. Jo will be running a two-hour course on Publishing and Editing.
All three workshops will be held in two parts over Friday and Saturday, and places are strictly limited for individual seminars on a first-come, first-served basis.
