I’ve been in teaching mode a lot lately. Last week marked the end of the semester at Western Colorado University, where I’m a lecturer in the Publishing Concentration for the Graduate Program in Creative Writing. And, of course, we do all sorts of teaching here at WMG.

Most of our online courses are taught by Dean Wesley Smith (although Kristine Kathryn Rusch and I have contributed a few there, too). And as this is the Time of Great Forgetting for writers, we’re holding a flash sale on all of our online workshops and lectures.

It runs through 7 p.m. PDT Wednesday, May 11.

And if you want some great suggestions on how to make the most of the flash sale and keep focused over the next few months, check out Dean’s blog here.

Kris and Dean also write a lot of books on writing and the publishing business. Those come in the form of our WMG Writer’s Guides and Kris’ Freelancer’s Survival Guides.

And this year’s 2022 Write Stuff StoryBundle offers the best of both worlds from WMG: an online workshop and a Freelancer’s Survival Guide three-book bundle.

It has eight other fantastic writing and publishing guides, as well. I wrote all about it in last week’s blog (which you can find here), but it ends this week, so don’t miss your chance.

There’s a lot to be learned from fiction, too, I’ve found. And here at WMG, we, of course, have fiction in spades.

And our latest issue of Pulphouse Fiction Magazine offers up some of the most cutting edge writing out there!

Here’s the synopsis:

A three-time Hugo Award nominated magazine, Issue #17 of Pulphouse Fiction Magazine offers up twenty-one fantastic stories by some of the best writers working in modern short fiction.

No genre limitations, no topic limitations, just great stories. Attitude, feel, and high-quality fiction equals Pulphouse.
