CANCELED: Presentation for Short Story Writers – Sept 24th, 4.30 p.m. Pacific

The next virtual (Zoom) event - "Speculative Short Fiction: Finding Markets and Communities, Understanding Industry Standards and Contracts" - is slated for September 24th, 4.30 pm Pacific Time. It's a presentation from The Two Hour Transport team: Nicole Bade, Ramona Ridgewell and Elly Bangs. It's aimed at authors looking to get short stories published. The presentation will be followed by a question period, and of course our usual breakout rooms for FOGcon folk to hang out and chat. Hope to see all you writers!

RAMONA RIDGEWELL (she/her): Besides writing dystopian flash fiction and not-yet-published epic vampire novels, Ramona Ridgewell spends her days tapping on a keyboard to create pretty software.

Although no furries currently share her home, crows from the neighborhood murder follow her own walks and drop little gifts to gain her affection. Her current novel-in-progress follows a Seattle vampire as he deals with the pandemic on top of his normal housing and job insecurities. A proud member of Dreamcrashers, she thrives in the Two Hour Transport community.
