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 11:00 pm: Cyberchildren (Ends at: 11:55 pm)|
Panelists: Meriah Lysistrata Crawford, Judi Fleming, James Morrow (M)
How has growing up with all this technology changed today's youth? Will those who build robots in school look at them differently? Does instant access to all the facts on the Internet influence their memory, attention span? What changes are still to come?
|Saturday 9:00 am: Fire the Literary Canon? (Ends at: 9:55 am)|
Panelists: Meriah Lysistrata Crawford, Charles E. Gannon, Rahul Kanakia, James Morrow (M), K. Ceres Wright
Are schools doing a disservice to youth by forcing the reading of "Classics"? Are there opportunities that are being missed using lists of classics? Do the classics still speak to the modern reader? Are there still some books everyone should read, and need a teacher to help explain? Or do the classics turn some people off reading?
|Saturday 3:00 pm: Life and Death of the Shared Universe (Ends at: 3:55 pm)|
Panelists: Iver Cooper (M), Meriah Lysistrata Crawford, Annette Klause, Lawrence M. Schoen
Why did these become so popular? What about Wildcards and others made them survive? Can the Internet revive this form? Or is its demise a victory of art over commercialization?
|Saturday 4:00 pm: Insert Tab A into Slot B: Sexing Up Your Fiction (Ends at: 5:55 pm)|
Panelists: Meriah Lysistrata Crawford (M)
In this workshop, we’ll discuss the differences between fiction with sex, erotic romance, and different types of erotica, and what markets exist for each category. We’ll look at examples of good and bad sex writing, and discuss what language and level of detail will most effectively accomplish your goals. Through writing and workshopping, you will hone your skills and impress your peers. Chocolate will be provided for inspiration, and to keep your energy level high.
Up to 12 people.
18 and over only.
|Saturday 6:00 pm: Blood in Southern Waters (Ends at: 6:55 pm)|
Panelists: Meriah Lysistrata Crawford, Andrew Fox (M), Sherin Nicole, Betsy A. Riley
Is it something in the water, but why are there so many vampires in the South? From Anne Rice to Charlaine Harris to L.J. Smith it seems all vampires that don't sparkle live in the South. Why?
