Right now, in Las Vegas, a group of writers and editors are attending the annual WMG Publishing Anthology Workshop to put together not only volumes of Fiction River and Pulphouse Fiction Magazine, but also the WMG Holiday Spectacular calendar and volumes (which will again include the winter holidays but also add Valentine’s and Halloween calendars to the mix for 2021). This year’s attendees also had the opportunity to write for a non-WMG publication, as well. They’re having a great deal of fun down there, and I can’t wait to see how these volumes shape up!

We will be announcing dates for the 2021 Anthology Workshop shortly, so don’t miss your chance to sign up. Click here for more information.

While you’re on the WMG Workshops site, be sure to check out our other in-person and online workshops and lectures. The online lectures are a great entry point for those new to our learning products. All of our online workshops and lectures are on the Teachable platform. This month’s features classes include a special Collaboration class, the Year of the Cat Study Course, and the Great Publishing Challenge. We have classes on craft, business, design and so much more. Click here to go straight to the WMG Teachable page.

Speaking of the Year of the Cat, thank you so much to everyone who supported our recent Year of the Cat Kickstarter! We met every one of our stretch goals and are so excited to begin working on that project. Thank you!!!

And don’t forget that the Visions of the Future Storybundle ends this week, so if you want to sample a magazine that was created in one of our past Anthology Workshops (Fiction River: Visions of the Apocalypse) as well as nine other fantastic future-focused books, check it out here.

So, whether you want something new to read or to learn new ways to hone your craft, we’ve got something for you!
