|Friday 7:00 pm: New Media, New Markets, New Business Models (Ends at: 7:55 pm)|
Panelists: Scott H. Andrews, Neil Clarke, Norm Sherman (M), Sean Wallace, K. Ceres Wright
A Review of notable genre ezines, the forms they are taking and the business models they are adopting. There was a time when the word "Google" was not ubiquitous-- when bored, mopey teenagers didn't have Myspace, and huffy, choleric left and right wingers didn't have blogs. When people would have responded to the word "Youtube" with an angry "What'd you just call me buddy?!" It was in these prehistoric times that young speculative fiction ezines began to emerge from fetid, shallow waters on their stumpy leg-like fin structures to the promising shores of the internet. There has been an enormous boom of new markets online, many which pay professional rates to authors and have large and dedicated audiences. How has the genre ezine structure and business model changed? Are these models and structures working?
|Saturday 9:00 am: Short Fiction Sources (Ends at: 9:55 am)|
Panelists: Neil Clarke, Mike McPhail (M), Alex Shvartsman, Sean Wallace
Aside from the not so big anymore three magazines, where do you go for short fiction? What online sources have the best stories?
