If you are in 150 mile radius of the gentle town of Frostburg, Maryland, consider making the drive to come see me this summer in one of two events sponsored by the downtown Creative Writing Center at Frostburg State University.
FIRST UP: MAY 2nd, Coffee with a Writer
On May 2nd, 10am, meet me in downtown Frostburg at the FSU Creative Writing Center and join me in the morning for a cuppa joe. (Oh, who are we fooling? I will drink gallon drums of the stuff!). It’s a happy little gig they call “Coffee with a Writer” — an open-to-the-public live conversation about all things writing. We’ll informally sit down to chat about writing, horror, life as an author and all the weirdness in between. The more coffee the weirder.
Located at 22 East Main Steet in downtown Frostburg. The CWC has coffee, wi-fi access, writing reference books, and contemporary literary journals to browse.

I RETURN AGAIN: JULY 23rd-26th, Nightsun Writing Conference
Arnzen will be leading the speculative fiction workshops at the 9th annual Nightsun Writers Conference, held from July 23 through July 26th, at the Creative Writing Center in downtown Frostburg, MD.
These workshops require advanced registration. See the Nightsun website for details. It’s a chance for writers to generate new material for publication, hone the craft of creative writing, and join a larger writing community, along with getting the one-on-one attention of a guest author. Others who are teaching at the conference include Allison Joseph, Karen McElmurray, and Tim Wendel. Read more on the gorelets event page or visit Nightsun.
Nightsun recently interviewed me about my writing process, as part of the lead up to the conference.
A rare chance to work with Arnzen outside of enrollment in a graduate school. Registration ends July 1st. Black hole sun, won’t you come?
