Wofford Shared Worlds

This summer, Wofford College in South Carolina is putting on its first Shared Worlds program. It proposes to teach kids entering grades 8 through 12 all about creating fictional settings for fiction, art, and games. Jeremy Jones, who sometimes comments around these parts, put it all together, and the lineup of teachers and speakers is phenomenal. It makes me wish I was in high school again.

Just among my friends, we find an all-star cast of guest speakers: Edward Bolme, Richard Dansky, Troy Denning, Jeff Mariotte, Jared Sorensen, and John Wick. Plus, Ken Hite and Doug Niles will be teaching all week.

Because of a scheduling conflict, I won’t be able to make it down myself, and it’s killing me. It’s sure to be a wonderful week. If you know of anyone who might be interested in attending, be sure to spread the word and let them know. It’s sure to be something special.

  1. Agreed. The lineup is impressive (and that website is great). I had hoped to go, too, but it falls right on the birthday of my sons, so I had to pass. Next year, maybe.

  3. You never know, Brian. By the way, have you talked with the guys at Popcorn Press? Publishing that sort of book might be right up their alley. It’s owned by three of the Alliterates.

    Sad you hear you can’t make it either, Paul. That’s the price of being a good dad, so at least we’ll be in good company together.

  5. Yeah, they’ve already chimed in. Seriously though, we do need a few more writers.

    I also need to figure out the fate of Private Forbeck in my story…
