Matt sez, "Here's a short video featuring author Jeff VanderMeer talking about Shared Worlds, a two-week summer camp experience where students work with authors and instructors to create entire worlds, complete with history, economy, language and culture. Students write in those worlds, share them and apply them to fiction, art, and game design. This year's camp just ended, but they're already gearing up for next year!" Shared World's -- author Jeff VanderMeer (Thanks, Matt!)
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
