Semi-Final Program Grid for Victoria Janssen
This is the Semi-Final program schedule. Victoria Janssen 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.
|Saturday 12:00 pm: 1001 Uses for an Unpublished Story (Ends at: 12:55 pm)|
Panelists: Laura Anne Gilman, Larry Hodges, Victoria Janssen (M), Craig Alan Loewen, Alan Smale
Sometimes they sell,sometimes they don't, what do you do with your unsold stories? Do you ever write anything you know can't be sold? Do you mine the novel in your trunk?
|Saturday 4:00 pm: Doctor Who (Ends at: 4:55 pm)|
Panelists: Kate Baker, Victoria Janssen (M), Kathryn Morrow, Hildy Silverman, Jon Skovron
Doctors have become more emotional. Peter Capaldi is the 12th doctor, what adventures will he have? Will the BBC accept a different kind of Doctor? One of color, female, or transgender?
|Sunday 9:00 am: City Faerie Folk - Urban Fantasy in the Mainstream (Ends at: 9:55 am)|
Panelists: Victoria Janssen (M), Patrick Scaffido, Michelle D. Sonnier
Once a fringe segment of genre writing, urban Fantasy has moved out front. It is growing in popularity. Who are the authors that are leading the charge? What is it about the writing that is drawing in the legions of fans? Does putting magic in the present day make it more mundane or all the greater for the contrast?
|Sunday 2:00 pm: Robot Love and Alien Dating? (Ends at: 2:55 pm)|
Panelists: Victoria Janssen (M), Marianne Mancusi, Kathryn Morrow
Romance is hot. It sells. How does romance fit into Science Fiction? Or does it? Can the elements of a classic romance work in SF/fantasy? How do writers balance the two elements? Is Science Fiction romance an oxymoron?
