Writer Vandana Singh blogs about a science fiction writing workshop that will happen in India this summer. Singh will be one of the instructors:
"Until fairly recently, though, we didn’t know if we were going to have any applicants, but now it is pukka, as we say in India. Eighteen people have been selected based on their submitted writing samples. Most are not established writers but all have promise and enthusiasm. And — amazingly — about 50% are women!"
