Welcome to the home page for Paradise Icon, a neo-pro writer's workshop sponsored by Mindbridge and affiliated with Paradise Lost workshops. 1
Alumni of neo-pro writing workshops are invited to apply for a 2-day workshop experience that combines a Milford style workshop with an opportunity to attend and participate in Icon, a general science fiction and fantasy convention. Icon author guests will hold panels with the participants and neo-pros will have the opportunity to read their work and participate on convention panels. The capstone of the experience will be a chance to meet and connect with guests, local authors and regular Icon attendees.
Icon will be held in Cedar Rapids, Iowa from November 15-17, 2013. Participants will be encouraged to arrive Thursday evening as the workshop will begin early Friday morning. Workshop activities will conclude Saturday evening.
- Paradise workshops are a non-commercially affiliate series of events sponsored by and hosted by pro and neo-pro writers. The name is seen as a tribute to Viable Paradise writing workshops. Paradise Icon is part of the Mindbridge family of science fiction and fantasy projects. ↩
