The start of the Portolan Project!

Yay! Super-excited to finally get this up — I think this counts as a birthday! Happy birthday!

Here’s the start of the Portolan Project, the SLF’s new endeavor providing free creative writing instruction — an interview I did with George R.R. Martin, asking him about how to write great epic fantasy. Dublin WorldCon, 2019. About 30 minutes total.

Transcription will be coming shortly — hopefully within a week. Thanks for your patience as we get this project up and running!
