In a journey around contemporary Japan, through a series of apparently unrelated incidents, we are given an exclusive insight into the consequence of contact with the paranormal.

Elsewhen PressWe will be at this year’s Eastercon – Dysprosium 2015 at the Park Inn in Heathrow.
We have a whole room to ourselves, syndicate room 13 (luckily we’re not superstitious).

Writers’ Workshop – Editing your masterpiece
Saturday 4th April 11:15-12:15
Elsewhen Press (Armstrong room)

This is a one-hour workshop intended for new unpublished writers.  You’ve written your masterpiece, but no-one seems to be interested in reading it, let alone publishing it.  Many submitted manuscripts are rejected out of hand because the author has clearly not performed even basic editing, proofreading or sanity-checking of their text.  This workshop will identify the pitfalls of typical tools as well as common mistakes, and suggest helpful techniques to overcome them.

Mike French, founding editor of The View from Here literary magazine and author of the Dandelion Trilogy, also runs workshops for aspiring writers. As one of the authors published by Elsewhen Press, he has agreed to lead this workshop to help you to make sure that your work is ready for submitting to an agent or publisher.  Elsewhen Press authors Christopher Nuttall (Bookworm series, Royal Sorceress series, Inverse Shadows series…), Peter R. Ellis (Seventh Child, The Power of Seven) and Dave Weaver (Jacey’s Kingdom, Japanese Daisy Chain, The Black Hole Bar) will also be on hand to offer advice and help, and an Elsewhen Press editor will also offer an insight into the publisher’s perspective. The workshop will be limited to twelve (12) attendees, pre-booking is essential and places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.

Attendees should bring with them a Speculative Fiction short story they have already completed or one that is close to completion, of between 2000 and 5000 words.  During the workshop there will be the opportunity to edit your story with help and advice from Mike, Chris, Peter or Dave.  You can either edit your piece in the workshop on your own laptop, or bring a printed copy and scribble on that!  All attendees will be given the opportunity to subsequently submit a short story (by the end of May 2015) for critique and consideration for possible inclusion in a future anthology from Elsewhen Press.

If you wish to attend, please email pete@elsewhen.co.uk with your name (and badge name if that is different) before Tuesday 31st March.

Existence is Elsewhen, our fantastic new anthology is available from 18th March 2016 as an eBook. It will be published in print on 25th March 2016, and launched at Mancunicon.

The title, Existence is Elsewhen, paraphrases the last sentence of André Breton’s 1924 Manifesto of Surrealism, perfectly summing up the intent behind this anthology of stories from a wonderful collection of authors. Different worlds… different times. It’s what Elsewhen Press has been about since we launched our first title in 2011.

In Existence is Elsewhen we present twenty science fiction stories for you to enjoy, one from each of the following twenty great authors:
