WOTF Success Rate

As part of his research, Kevin J. Anderson has established some fantastic facts. One, he comments on below.

Also — and this is astonishing — if you measure success by whether our winners/students leave the workshop and go on to publish professional novels or multiple pro short stories [most aspiring writers would call that success], WotF has about a 30-35% success rate. That’s unheard of for a writing class or workshop.

    That is quite impressive. In my six college writing classes, with roughly 100 classmates total, I have not heard of a single one who has been professionally published. I'd prefer my odds in the WotF contest!

    One of the other admins once told me that he had looked at some numbers over a few sessions, and that something around 90% of WotF attendees went on to publish at least one more time after the event.
