Don't miss this special workshop being conducted by Michael L. Helfstein of the USNR(Ret) and award-winning SFR author, Linnea Sinclair: Creating Your Space Military Workshop.
The event information on the web site summarizes the focus of the workshop as follows: "to mix real military facts with paranormal, science fiction, and fantasy inventions to create the space fleet, alien paramilitary, or alternate universe armed forces you need for your science fiction or urban fantasy novel."
The workshop is being sponsored by the RWA FF&P (Fantasty, Futuristic & Paranormal Chapter) and you do not need to be a member to enroll. The class will be conducted via Yahoo email loop from January 4 through January 31. Cost is $25 for non-members and $10 for members.
Just want to add, if you write SFR, are a RWA member and not yet a member of FF&P, I highly recommend joining. Most of this special chapter's events are conducted online, including regular workshops, chats, interviews and blog articles, and they also host a special dinner and awards event at the annual RWA national conference. It's a great way to mix with your peers and hear all the latest SFR news.
