Villa Diodati 3

The south of France, eleven artists, excellent meals, plenty of wine... Ah, the rigours of a speculative writing workshop.

We did the third Villa Diodati workshop at the end of October, here in scenic Le Bar sur Loup. I dare to list the luminaries who were there, as their presence imparts a certain sheen of quality to my own pedestrian efforts:
Aliette de Bodard
Deanna Carlyle
Steve Gaskell
Sara Genge
Floris Kleijne
Rochita Loenen-Ruiz
Chance Morrison
Ruth Nestvold
John Olsen
Ben Rosenbaum
 
Here you can find a few of my photos, and many more can be found on flickr (few other things come up if you search for "VD3" ... ). The house we rented was thanks to good friends who also happen to make a living handling property rentals in the Côte d'Azur.

Onward and upward; the story that was critted at VD3 is already winging its way to F&SF.

good luck!
Good luck, Jeff. And thanks for being such a wonderful host. I am definitely going to try my hand at making your curry. Yum...

Lucky F&SF! Pedestrian? That story is positively automotive!
I'll up Floris on that one. I thought the story was luminous. It reminds me of one of those paintings where light just seems to radiate from the canvas. Now, I wish I had said that at the workshop. I'm sure there would have been lots of dittos.

What??

You're making me think I'm Caravaggio :-)
Thanks!

Re: What??

Do you know how much one of his paintings costs these days?

Seriously, I thought it was beautiful. And yes, like Caravaggio indeed. :)
