Philcon Schedule

And here's my initial Philcon schedule...oh my. Oz is going to be very busy on Saturday!

DO YOU WRITE WITH A READER IN MIND? (520)

[Panelists: Oz Drummond (mod), Gary Frank, Linda Bushyager, Gordon
Linzner, Alyce Wilson, Larry Hodges]

does a writer seek out an audience later

Sat 1:00 PM in Plaza I (One) (1 hour)

How do we use the internet as a social tool without giving away too
much of our privacy? Or is this even an issue? Is privacy real in
the internet era, or is it just an illusion in the age of Facebook,

sharing too much

I think this is a reading and well, I'm not ready for an entire hour yet. I've offered this back to programming to be filled by someone else.

SEXY SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY STORIES (445)

[Panelists: Oz Drummond (mod), Barbara Barnett, KT Pinto, Jennifer
Williams, Genevieve Iseult Eldredge]

How to combine sexual elements in your fiction


And at this point, I collapse in exhaustion. Parties? What parties? You want me to go to parties too???

IMPOSING CULTURAL STANDARDS ON THE ALIEN (487)

[Panelists: Ian Randal Strock (mod), Stephanie Burke, Helen Collins,
Oz Drummond]

Suppose you encounter extraterrestrial beings whose habits seem to
be morally dubious or downright evil. Should you attempt to reform
them? Does it make a difference if they look humanoid or look like
insects

The car will be packed before my panel. Make arrangements to see me before, like at breakfast. I want to get home before dark.

staggered on to SFWA party and now recovered. I was a bit too busy, considering I didn't arrive until 8pm on Friday and left by 2pm on Sunday. Friday night I chatted for about an hour after I arrived and then had to go finish my critiques. And Sunday, I had brunch with friends and then was off to a panel before getting on the road. I wanted to get home before the light was gone.

Cool. I want to meet Laura Anne someday. Oh, and Genevieve Iseult Eldredge is a SHU person (though after me) and is an author or editor or something with Loose Id, and she's on my FB, so I sort of know her by proxy. . .

Those sound like fantastic panels! Wish I could have gone.

Hope you survive and come back. Can't wait to hear about how it went.

They were good panels, yes. The internet one with Tee Morris was excellent. He's a good moderator, a regular fascist, but we had them all laughing and it was well-attended. The Sunday one was a bit of a bust, but that's not unheard of for Sunday. Only one other panelist showed up, but she was capable of carrying the entire panel all by herself! I just played her straight man.

It sounds very exciting! I think so many people have benefited from your generous participation and organization. I certainly have reaped a lot of rewards from your organization of the critiques at Anticipation 2009 and then the online critique circle you made as follow up. I can't thank you enough...

Re: Philcon
Traci and I may have sorted people out, but it was Rich who came up with the idea for the meeting and then everything took on a life of its own from there. I just watched. It's the group that keeps it all alive, not me. But there was real talent in the Montreal workshops and I look forward to seeing that kind of talent in Reno as well. And word is that Chicago will also have workshops.
