Submissions run from the First of January through the Fifteenth of June. Viable Paradise (have we really been doing this for seventeen years?) will be held at the Island Inn on Martha’s Vineyard from Sunday, October 13th, through Friday, October 18th, 2013.
The instructors are the Lovely and Talented Miss Teresa, the Handsome and Witty Mr. Patrick, Dr. Debra “The Black Goat Of A Thousand Young” Doyle, the Hugo-Winning Yet Oddly Approachable Elizabeth Bear, Steve With A Hat Brust, Steve Without A Hat But With A Movie Gould, Sherwood the YA Goddess Smith, and me.
So, what is VP best known for (aside from the scintillating conversation, the brilliant stories, and the lasting camaraderie amongst its graduates (those who make it past Thursday Night))?
Note with appalled wonder:
Heh, yeah, I guess you had to have been there. The point is, you can.
