26 May: Author Beth Burnett, who is also the director of membership for the Golden Crown Literary Society (GCLS focuses on lesfic), blogged about the GCLS Writing Academy, a 10-month program (with a focus on lesfic) for brand new writers or writers who would like structure and writing craft work under their belts. The program is $995 U.S., but there is a scholarship available, in honor of the late and deeply missed author Sandra Moran. Though the scholarship application deadline for this year has passed, there’s still time to apply to the academy.
