Preliminary Draft Program Grid for Walter H. Hunt
This is the Preliminary Draft program schedule. Walter H. Hunt 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 5:30 pm: Abusing Authors (Ends at: 6:25 pm) Salon A|
Panelists: Paolo Bacigalupi, Holly Black, Walter H. Hunt (M), Annette Klause, Will McIntosh, Bud Sparhawk
Panelists answer whatever questions the audience has on writing, editing, character development, agents, and others. Includes many non-writer-parts-of-being-a-writer, such as being your own boss, setting schedules, and so on.
|Friday 7:00 pm: War on Science? (Ends at: 7:55 pm) Bethesda|
Panelists: Inge Heyer, Walter H. Hunt, Sam Scheiner, Michael A. Ventrella (M), Christopher Weuve
Some of America's leaders don't believe in global warming, want creationism taught in schools, and others want to ban human cloning or restrict genetic modified foods. Why this distrust of science? Is it growing? Are political leaders trying to appeal to the ignorant or do they really believe this? And what is the danger to the planet?
|Saturday 11:30 am: Reading (Hunt) (Ends at: 11:55 am) Frederick|
Panelists: Walter H. Hunt
|Saturday 1:00 pm: Time Travel Storytelling (Ends at: 1:55 pm) Bethesda|
Panelists: John Ashmead (M), Brenda W. Clough, Walter H. Hunt, James Morrow, Alan Smale
A discussion of the cultural implications of time travel. Should an author use appropriate to the time language in their time travel and historical stories, or is it ok to use modern sensibilities? Is it fair to readers to give historical figures beliefs that were never shown in their real life actions?
|Saturday 3:00 pm: Rules? Rules? There are no Rules! (Ends at: 3:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists: Paolo Bacigalupi, Walter H. Hunt (M), Alma Katsu, James Morrow, Lawrence M. Schoen, Lawrence Watt-Evans
When writing fiction, if it works, it works. Our panel debates whether authors need to know "rules" that they can then break if they are good enough, or if this only constrains creativity.
|Saturday 11:00 pm: Eye of Argon (Ends at: 11:55 pm) Bethesda|
Panelists: Walter H. Hunt, Sarah Pinsker, Ian Randal Strock, Michael A. Ventrella (M), Jean Marie Ward
Our panelists read the worst fantasy story ever written, mistakes and all, and if they laugh or read it incorrectly, they are forced to act out the story. Just try not to fall over laughing! At some point, volunteers from the audience can participate and discover firsthand the author's contentious relationship with spelling, capitalization and punctuation.
