I’m really excited about Scintillation, which is a new convention in Montreal, spearheaded by the inimitable Jo Walton. This October 5 to 7 will be its first iteration, and I’ll be there!
Here are my panels and readings:
Sat. Oct. 6. 16:00 You Write Funny
Everyone else’s writing methods are bizarre: let’s compare our own perfectly normal methods.
Jo Walton (M), Max Gladstone, Kari Maaren, Greer Gilman, Kate Heartfield
Sat. Oct. 6. 19:00 Reading with Premee Mohamed
Sun. Oct. 7. 10:00 Names and Characters
Characters have to have names, and names are part of worldbuilding, and deeply imbedded in culture. How do we decide on names for our characters that work within our worlds and also for our readers in this world?
A.E. Prevost (M), Debra Doyle, Sherwood Smith, Kate Heartfield, Jim Cambias, David Levine
