I will be attending Norwescon 36 this year.
Read more for my schedule:
1. Rebuilding Humans from the Inside Out
Friday 1:00pm-2:00pm Cascade 3&4
We are developing techniques for fixing genetic flaws and enhancing resistance to disease by rewriting a person's genome. The potential for good is staggering, but so is the potential for harm. Our panelists will discuss how gene therapy works and how this technology could be used and misused.
2. Crossing Boundaries: Writing the Other
Friday 2:00pm-3:00pm Cascade 7
Can you write a great character of another gender? From a different culture? A different sexual orientation? How do you know what's good characterization and what's stereotyping?
3. Residential Writing Workshops: Clarion and More
Sunday 2:00pm-3:00pm Cascade 3&4
Learn about the major genre workshops like Clarion, Clarion West, Odyssey, Viable Paradise, and more. Are you ready to attend a residential workshop? What will you learn? Each workshop has advantages and disadvantages, so which workshop will work best for you?
I will also be reading from my forthcoming novel, The Age of Ice, on Sunday 10:00am-10:30am Cascade 1
