And, by the way, Horror on the Installment Plan is still looking for horror short stories for their themed issues and paying professional rates.
Edmund R. Schubert interviews Steve Savile about the HWA programme. Basically an experienced writer teams up with a less experienced, affiliate HWA member.
Affiliate membership requirements are sale in horror/dark fantasy of one of the following:
- Sell one short story of at least 500 words, for payment of at least $25.
- Sell one non-fiction article, role-playing supplement, comic book script, computer gaming script, or theatrical play for payment of at least $50.
- Sell one book-length manuscript (40,000 words or more) for payment of at least $200.
- Sell a screenplay or an option on your existing screenplay for payment of at least $200.
- Sell three poems for total payment of at least $15.
I'm very tempted. I reckon I qualify for membership. I wonder how much it is? I've always fancied having a mentor.
Has anyone had experience being mentored by another writer?
edited. Here's the membership page for HWA. If you join after July, for half a year, it's only $25.
