Semi-Final Program Grid for Meriah Lysistrata Crawford

This is the Semi-Final program schedule. Meriah Lysistrata Crawford may or may not actually be on these items, but probably will. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, modifications to the program can occur throughout the convention.

Friday 10:00 pm: Can you hear me now? (Ends at: 10:55 pm)
Panelists: Catherine Asaro (M), Meriah Lysistrata Crawford, Elaine Stiles
What is the future of communication? How is social interaction changing in the age of Facebook and Twitter? Asimov wrote about Spacers who never left their homes, with Skype, video conferencing, and telecommuting people can actually do this. How will this affect the world?
Friday 11:00 pm: Character abuse (Ends at: 11:55 pm)
Panelists: Meriah Lysistrata Crawford, Dave Klecha, James Maxey, Allen Wold (M)
Do your characters have human rights? You put them through hell, donít they deserve a little love? Authors relate how they treat their characters and discuss what is the line between interesting development and abuse.
Saturday 6:00 pm: The Unwritten Secrets of Writer Groups (Ends at: 6:55 pm)
Panelists: Michael Capobianco, Meriah Lysistrata Crawford, Aly Parsons (M), Jamie Todd Rubin, Jim Stratton
What are Writers Groups and how do they help or hinder writers? What are some of your own experiences with writer groups? Please share the good, the bad, and the interesting.
Sunday 10:00 am: My Buddy, My Beta (Ends at: 10:55 am)
Panelists: Meriah Lysistrata Crawford, David Louis Edelman, James Morrow, Aly Parsons (M), Jim Stratton
I want your honest opinion about how you really love my book. Can your friends and family function as your beta readers to advise you on your story/novel and help you improve it? Can they give your manuscript a reality check before sending it to the editor? Who do authors choose as their reader and what kind of feedback do they get and give? Is it hard to tell a friend their story isnít quite right?
