Next weekend I'll be making an appearance at Convolution, taking place in Burlingame, CA. I'll be reading on Friday night and in addition to the writer's workshop, I'll have panels on Saturday and Sunday. Here's my schedule - I would love to see you there!
Friday, September 26, 8-10pm Reading
This is going to be an awesome time. I'll be reading aloud from my work alongside a number of wonderful authors: Deborah J. Ross, Helen Stringer, Setsu Uzume, and Christopher Villa.
Saturday, September 27, 9am-12pm Writer's Workshop
Saturday, September 27, 2-3pm Autographing
Come and see me, and bring your copies of Analog and/or Clarkesworld... I'll also have a few copies available for purchase!
Saturday, September 27, 4-6pm Handling Rejection in Writing
Sometimes your skin just isn't that thick. How to cope with a chorus of "No" on the path to a "Yes!"
with Gail Carriger, Matthew Marovich, and Deborah J. Ross.
Sunday, September 28, 10-12am Bend it like Bechdel
Finding an alternative to the Bechdel test. The Mako Mori test isn't quite right either. We know when we've found a movie or story that we feel is at least some better representation of women. But it doesn't always pass the test. So, what does it need? What do we want? Or, what are we willing to accept?
with Elanor Hughes, Lance Moore, and Michael Rhodes
Sunday, September 28, 12-2pm Social Worldbuilding
Let's talk about designing societies and their behaviors and institutions, and the kinds of real interactions those will lead to between characters. While we're doing it, let's try to look beyond traditional European-based models and get really diverse and interesting.
with Marie Brennan, Steven Mix, and Madeleine Robins
We're going to have a ton of fun and talk about loads of great stuff. I hope to see you there!
