|Every year for the past half-decade, young writers ages 13 to 17 have come from as far away as Japan, Canada, Germany and France to the Shared Worlds Science Fiction and Fantasy camp in South Carolina, to work with professional writers on creating the students’ own fantasy worlds and developing stories set in those worlds. Now, an international group of guest writers who are instructors at Shared Worlds are coming to Malaprop’s for a Fantasy and Science Fiction extravaganza featuring short readings, amusing anecdotes, information about the camp, and much more!
