Alphan Interview Quotes v 2.0!
“If you love writing speculative fiction, Alpha will be the best experience in the world.”
From the website of Sarah Hollowell!
“Alpha stands head and shoulders above. The format, the instructors, the peers, and the intensity of a live-in writers’ education combine perfectly.”
“If you require an explanation of an advanced scientific concept, or any historical period, to complete the scene you’re working on, chances are someone in the room can help.”
“Before Alpha, I wrote but didn’t really know anything about getting published. Now, I know which publishers might take a given story I write, and I have the confidence to send my work to them. I know contests that take undergraduate fiction, like the annual Dell Awards, which Alphans often sweep. And through Alpha I’ve made acquaintances and even friends in the business.”
“The greatest benefit that comes from Alpha long-term, though, is Alphans themselves. It’s an incredible thing, to walk into a room in Pittsburgh and suddenly find yourself amongst people who click with all your strangenesses, and having had that experience, Alphans tend to hold on to it.”
“Personally, I met some of the most amazing people I’ve ever known at Alpha, and have had the privilege of becoming friends with a good number of them. I don’t think my experience is unusual.”
