Panelists: Nick Mamatas
'If you don't use your imagination someone else will use it for you.'—Ronald Sukenick

In SF/F a good idea can go a long way, but often the first ideas we think of for a story or novel are well-worn, and are probably already in the slush pile with another author's name on it. In this brief workshop, writers will be exposed to a stimulus and together with facilitator Nick Mamatas will generate three ideas and write a flash fiction based on a common theme. Participants will practice the skills needed to use their own imaginations, rather than having them used by "someone else." (Full)

Sunday 12:00 pm: World Wide Writers (Ends at: 12:55 pm)
Panelists: Nick Mamatas, James Morrow, Kathyrn Morrow
Beyond Terry Pratchett, there’s a whole world of writers. Who are the authors not from the U.S. or Canada that people should know about and read? Why do American publishers rarely translate books? How can Americans get a hold of these books? In what ways is non-American sf/fantasy different from the local variant?
