Bobby Harrell sold two stories! “This is older news to me, but I haven’t had a chance to update the Workshop yet. I sold “The Advantage is Decadent and Depraved” to defenestrationism.net on June 14th, 2022 AND a story called Case Race on OWW and now called “Asleep at the Wheel on the Razorwave Grand Prix” will be published later this year in The Back Forty anthology!!! I found out about the second sale on November 21st 2022.”
Ethan Sabatella has good news to share: “I wanted to reach out to announce that a story I had workshopped on OWW has sold. My story, entitled “The Abartachs’ Hostage” will be featured in DMR Books’ anthology Die By the Sword Volume 1, set to be published in May 2023.”
A great start to a new year! Congratulations, Ethan.
Jack Windeyer wants everyone to know he made his first sale!
“Writing to let you know about my first sale. “Therapy is Now in Beta” is included in The Colored Lens’ Autumn 2022 issue. The story received fantastic feedback across two drafts from this workshop. Thanks especially to Rodrigo Culagovski who reviewed both drafts!”
Huge congratulations, Jack! First sales are a total rush. Enjoy it.
Rodrigo Culagovski wrote to tell us: “Just to report that I sold “Max Loves the Internet”, which was reviewed on the workshop by Jack Windeyer, C J Peterson, Darrell Newton, Shannon Walch, F Teesak, Dean Altman, and Lyri Ahnam last March and April.
As always, I’m indebted to the workshop and everybody on it for kick starting my writing career at the tender age of 51.”
Douglas Schwarz sent really good news: “My novelette “Le Sorcier de Lascaux” (workshopped on OWW!) appears in the current (Sept/Oct 22) issue of Fantasy & Science Fiction. The issue is available here from Weightless Books.”
Pro sales are always exciting. Huge congratulations, Douglas!
Wonderful news from Rodrigo Culagovski: “Just wanted to let you know I sold “You Don’t Have to Watch This Part” to the Dark Matter Presents: Monstrous Futures anthology.
The story was reviewed in the workshop by Kathleen Morrish, Steve Brady, Albert Chu, Ethan Sabatella, and Lyri Ahnam. It’s my third pro sale since joining the workshop less than a year ago and there’s no way that would have happened without the feedback, criticism, and encouragement I’ve gotten from the people here.”
Huge congratulations, Rodrigo!
Gregor Hartmann wrote with great news: “I’m pleased to announce that “A Language Older Than Ears,” another Inspector Song mystery, has been published in Andromeda Spaceways Magazine (June 2022 issue). It was critiqued here last spring. Thanks again to Andrea Horlick, Larry Pinaire, Bryce Heckman, Kathleen Morrish, and Emily Scharf for their comments.”
Peter S. Drang wrote with wonderful news: “Just wanted to let you know that Factor Four Magazine, a pro publication, just bought my story “Metaforming” which was reviewed extensively on OWW. Thanks to everyone who helped polish this story, which combines Pandemic angst, “The Island of Doctor Moreau”, and “Dr. Jean’s Banana Dance Song”.
Rodrigo Culagovski sent amazing news, and the cover reveal for his new story: “I made my second pro sale! It’s “One Night At The Pájaro Azul”, which was featured in the workshop in January. It will come out in the July issue of SolarPunk Magazine. The workshop has helped me immensely, and there’s no way I could have made two pro sales in a relatively short time without it. Thanks!”
