Walter Jon Williams announced that Joey Yu is the winner of the inaugural Terran Award scholarship, funded by George R.R. Martin to cover all tuition and fees (travel and meals not included) for one applicant to attend the Taos Toolbox writing workshop. Applicants “must be from from a country where English is not the primary language.” The winner was selected by workshop staff including Walter Jon Williams and Nancy Kress.
Joey Yu was born in Taipei, educated in Vancouver, and now works in Shanghai as a freelance creator. He is the author of several novels published in China, including The Sunlight Trilogy of futuristic fantasy novels, The Mirrored Truth, and The Locus, which won the Excellence Award of the Taiwan Fantasy Foundation.
