Event session

Using knowledge and research of real-life history as world-building fantasy and science fiction.

As easy as a Babel Fish is, usually alien languages are handled differently in science fiction. The panelists discuss various alien languages and how they are understood.

I sign books, if you bring them. Or come and chat. I'll sign your cat. I'll sign your program book. Really, just come and say hi to me. If there's enough interest, we can adjourn to a bar-like-equivalent afterward for a completely unofficial kaffeeklatsch. This is your chance!

Historical Fantasy: What is it and how does it differ from fantasy or historical fiction? What makes for good historical fantasy? What are some variations within this genre? How can it illuminate our understanding of the past and future?

Knowing Your Character's Cultural Priorities and Personal Rebellions

What does utopia look like if you're queer or female?

Planning Long Term Arcs for Plots and Characters.

Much of modern speculative fiction has roots in ancient mythology. We'll explore how myth and fiction play together, and how myth has shaped fiction over time.

Readings from current and recent projects.

Join our panelists for a nuts and bolts discussion from personal experiences in the brave new world of Social Media as Writer and/or Author. What platforms work, and for for what? How do you get followers/fans? What is the most effective way to reach people who will buy my books, not just other writers? How do you keep these people engaged and interacting on your networks?
