I’ll be attending the 53rd Australian National Science Fiction Convention (Continuum X) in Melbourne, June 6 – 9, 2014.
Here’s my schedule:
Clarion and Odyssey — Are They Worth It?
Friday, June 6, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Panelists: Sofie Bird, Adam Brymora, Aidan Doyle, J. R. Hargenrader (m), Andrew Macrae
Clarion, Clarion West, and Odyssey are six week writing “boot camps” for new and prospective science fiction and fantasy writers. They are a serious commitment of time and money, but will they make you a better writer? Come join a panel of graduates from these programs to learn about their experiences and answer your questions.
The Writing’s on the Tablet
Friday, June 6, 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Panelists: Adam Brymora, J. R. Hargenrader, Tracy Joyce, Andrew Macrae (m), Dan Rabarts
Technology for writers. How do tablets, smartphones and other gadgets change the way we write and what are the most effective ways to work with them? How can writing software help writers plan out their work and keep track of themes, character development, timelines, etc?
If you get a chance, stop by and say, “Hi!”
