Just a reminder for those of you headed to Further Confusion this weekend that there are two FWG-sponsored panels on the schedule:
Furry Writers’ Guild Reading
Friday, January 15, 5:00 – 6:30 PM
Hilton: Santa Clara
(Members: If interested in participating in the reading, please contact Mary E. Lowd.)
The Furry Writers’ Guild has a wide range of members who write in all different styles. Come listen to members of the FWG read from their work.
Furry Writers’ Guild Meet & Greet
Friday, January 15, 9:30 – 11:00 PM
The Furry Writers’ Guild exists to support and connect members of the furry writing community. Come meet other writers and talk about the future of furry writing. Open to all — both members and newcomers!
Thanks to Mary E. Lowd and Chipotle for hosting the events!
Mark your calendars and set your alarms! Thanks to one of our members, we’re going to be having a special chat in our forums this Saturday, July 25, at 6 PM Eastern with Jennifer Tait, a senior production editor at one of the Big Five publishers.
As a senior production editor, Ms. Tait deals with the book after it’s been accepted, so she doesn’t have anything to do with reviewing submissions. That said, this is a great opportunity to get a bit of a behind-the-scenes look at the traditional publishing world and the aspects of the publishing process that she handles, and I’m very grateful that she’s agreed to come chat with us.
Many thanks to FWG member Bill “Greyflank” Kieffer for suggesting and arranging this. I’m hoping this will be the first of many guest chats we’ll have in future months and years.
Again, the chat will be Saturday, July 25 at 6 PM Eastern, in the forum shoutbox as usual. (If you’re not registered on the forums, you’ll need to register in order to see the shoutbox.) With Ms. Tait’s permission, I’ll also see about posting a transcript in the forums afterward, for the benefit of those who aren’t able to be on at the time. And if you can’t be there and want to leave a question for her, you can ask it here.
See you in the shoutbox on Saturday!
For those of you headed to Further Confusion this weekend, don’t forget the FWG Meet & Greet scheduled for Friday from 3:00 – 4:30 PM (Marriott: Blossom Hill I). Our members Huskyteer, Chipotle, Franklin Leo, and Mary Lowd will be on hand for discussion about the guild, our Cóyotl Awards, and more!
