Since its inception in 1996, Odyssey has become one of the most highly regarded workshops for writers of fantasy, science fiction, and horror. Guest lecturers include top writers, editors, and agents. Fifty-nine percent of graduates are professionally published, and among graduates are New York Times bestsellers, Amazon bestsellers, and award winners.

This year, Odyssey is transforming into Your Personal Odyssey Writing Workshop.

Have you ever wished that you could attend your own private writing workshop that would teach you exactly what you need to know, at the right pace for you, and respond to your questions, problems, and needs in extensive one-on-one sessions?

That's what Your Personal Odyssey Writing Workshop is. Students will receive the top-quality learning experience Odyssey is known for, but that experience will be customized to be more responsive to how each writer works and what each writer needs.

What Graduates Say
"In only six weeks, the Odyssey Writing Workshop taught me more about the craft and business of writing fantastical fiction than years of reading writing books, attending writing seminars and other workshops, and my many attempts at writing a novel that works." —Scott Gray

"The first two stories I ever sold would not have been written without Odyssey." —Elaine Isaak
