I’m writing this blog from the beautiful Western Colorado University campus this week, where I’m co-teaching the summer residency for the Graduate Program in Creative Writing’s publishing concentration, along with Director Kevin J. Anderson.
Kevin, who I met through my work with WMG and who has edited and written stories for our anthologies, including Fiction River and Pulphouse, recruited me last year to help with the residency. This year, I’ve joined the faculty to teach year-round.
We’re passionate about teaching here at WMG (as you might have surmised by the copious amount of WMG Publishing Workshops we offer on Teachable). Publishing is like that. We love to share what we know with others to help them avoid pitfalls and achieve success. In fact, our own Dean Wesley Smith has already been a guest speaker twice this residency.
One of the things Dean spoke with our students about was the history of Pulphouse Fiction Magazine. And this week, I’ll be teaching them how to run their own Kickstarters.
All of which will be a lot more interactive than usual because we will be launching our next Pulphouse Fiction Magazine Subscription Drive Kickstarter this week. And the students will be able to watch it progress live.
So will you, of course! (And we hope you’ll support it, too.)
Pulphouse Fiction Magazine not only survived the pandemic but emerged even stronger. We now publish six issues a year (instead of the four we started with), so you can find incredible new genre-bending fiction in your inbox or mailbox every other month.
We have new Pulphouse books in the works and special new Kickstarter-special workshops for writers. Plus collector’s editions from the original incarnation of Pulphouse and so much more!

The Kickstarter launches later this week, but you can preview it now at the link above.
Thank you to all of our subscribers who have kept this magazine going for so long. And to all of our new subscribers and Kickstarter supporters, thank you for joining in on the fun!
