All Hail the Worrad

Just about three years ago I was wondering what the Clarion writers workshop had in store for me. Well now my good friend and fellow Speculator, Jim Worrad is going through the same thing, for he has joined the tiny number of English men to stride across the Atlantic ocean and meet the American’s on their SF workshop soil. Congratulations Jim!

The Worrad does not blog, or indeed tweet. Until today! Follow @JimWorrad on Twitter to track his progress through 6 weeks of literary bootcamp. Jim isn’t entirely aware he is on Twitter yet, so give him a warm welcome to arrive to.

(Jim does in fact occasionally blog right here.)

  1. Hah, Damien, I’ve been seeing you (forgive the euphemism) plugging Jim about on the net. It was only yesterday that I realised I’ve known him for years – just never caught his surname. He he, I was fifteen when I first went and saw Beg To Differ, and Jim’s crazy bass styles have stuck with me since.

    Two and two got put together when another mutual friend said: ‘Hey, did you know Jim writes SF & F?’

    So yeah, Welcome Jim. Very jealous of your course. Doing DMU’s Creative Writing Joint honours, but it is nothing compared to Clarion.

    Take care all 8 ]
