The art of conlanging (constructing languages) is a very deep rabbit hole to fall down — but it’s possible to achieve realistic-looking results without knowing a retroflex lateral fricative from the ergative-absolutive. Here you will learn some simple techniques for creating proper names and invented terms that can lend a feeling of depth and realism to your invented world, without any need for in-depth linguistic expertise. Students are encouraged to develop a suitable example during the workshop.
This workshop is available to anyone aged 18 or older for a $55 fee.

The latest reviews and mentions of Tachyon titles and authors from around the web.
I’d never heard of the author before. Like THE VERY BEST OF CAITLÍN R. KIERNAN I didn’t know what to expect. This is a huge collection spanning almost forty years. The stories are so wide, diverse and completely different than no two stories are the same. The stories here made me want to read more of his work. I expected the stories to be more science fiction but they fit better into the speculative fiction box. I enjoyed every story here.
It’s a short read, easily digestible in one sitting. I really liked it, and now that I’ve dipped my toe into his work, I’ll definitely be reading more by Daryl Gregory!
Giving this one 4 beach umbrellas — easy to read on the beach, but the subject matter didn’t really meld well with the bright light of day.
Both Nalo Hopkinson and Eileen Gunn will be instructors at the six week summer 2020 CLARION WEST WRITERS WORKSHOP, June 21-July 31.
