I’ll be wandering around Worldcon this weekend and if you’d like to see me doing my thing, here’s some panels, etc containing me.
Thu Aug 30 3:00:pm – Daily Science Fiction Year One
Wrigley: A discussion of the first year of Daily Science Fiction, an innovative email magazine, with authors who appeared, as well as signing of the paper anthology.
David D. Levine, Grá Linnaea, Jonathan Laden
Thu Aug 30 6:00:pm – Can New Writers Still Break In With Short Stories?
Crystal: A panel featuring short fiction authors both old and new, discussing the value and relevance of short fiction for new and aspiring writers who want to break into professional publication. The discussion will include potential markets, fantasy versus science fiction, and awards.
Alan Smale, Catherine Shaffer, Ferrett Steinmetz, Grá Linnaea
Fri Aug 31 12:30:pm – Writer Under Glass #18
Fan Lounge: This isn’t actually a panel, but a stunt. Writers volunteer to sit in a certain place for 30-40 minutes each and write serially on a collaborative story. Each takes up where the previous left off throughout the run of the convention. The resulting manuscript will be printed out only once, signed by all the writers, and entered into the charity auction as a contribution from all the writers. Con attendees can watch the writers at work–this has to be done in public like Harlan Ellison’s writing in shop windows–but may not harass them. The attendees can watch what’s being written in real time on a remote monitor. The story is complete at the end of the con and no other copies will be made without consent of all the writers who participated.
Fri Aug 31 4:30:pm – Autograph Session 6
Riverside center Exhibition Hall
Charles Stross, Doug Hulick, Grá Linnaea, Hanna Martine, James Patrick Kelly, Jay Lake, Paul Genesse Sharon
Sun Sep 2 3:00:pm – Kaffeeklatsche with: Gra Linnaea
Come check this out. Anything you want to know about editing, how to navigate slush, small press, early career choices. Whatever you want!
Mon Sep 3 12:30:pm – Reading: Grá Linnaea
I’ll read from some of my recently published work. Guaranteed to be disturbing, depressing, funny, or all three!
