The Queens short-story/novel meet-up is an outpost for all writers in New York's greatest borough, open to all types of stories.
How did you get involved with BSFW and which events do you attend?
I think I found BSFW from some Google searching for in-person New York writing groups, and it ticked all the boxes. I've been known to attend Sam's Short Story Group, Marcus' Novel Group, Puloma's Short Story Group, and Marcy's Short Story Group.
What have you found most helpful about this writing group?
Working in critiques into my writing process and vastly improved my writing. You should run towards feedback in order to not be writing in the echo chamber of your own mind. I also like the sense of community it fosters with my fellow travelers in the sf writing world.
What stories have most influenced your writing style?
Too many to number. I once made a list of about 150 core influences
How do you find time to write?
You have to make time. I write at lunch breaks, at night after my child goes to bed, on weekends while she naps, and whenever else I get the chance.
What are you working on now?
A new novel about magic in New York City.
If you could submit a story to your dream anthology what would it be about and who else would be in it?
It would be an anthology of techno science-fantasy and include work by Max Gladstone, Yoon Ha Lee, Charles Yu, Seth Dickenson, and Hannu Rajaniemi
