How to Write Science Fiction with... Spider Robinson
Live Online 26th Jan 2013
from the comfort of your computer!
12 Noon PCT
Discription of event:
Spider Robinson will share the sofa for a confidential talk full of anecdotes and insights about science fiction, the publishing industry, and his lifelong journey as a reader, writer, and voice of the genre. Don't think of this as a lecture; think of it as a cosy chat with an old friend, one who just happens to be a shining star of contemporary science fiction and who knows all the juicy, meaningful stories you can't find in "how to" books.See the genre as you've never seen it before, through the eyes of a gifted and generous storyteller and professional. There's room on the sofa for you. Join StarShipSofa as it welcomes Spider Robinson for this one-time-only live event!
