Preliminary Draft Program Grid for Dina Leacock
This is the Preliminary Draft program schedule. Dina Leacock 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 4:00 pm: So You Want to be a Writer (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists: Brenda W. Clough, Dina Leacock (M), Will McIntosh, Michael A. Ventrella, Allen Wold
We did it before and we'll do it again! Authors discuss how they became a writer, and why you should(n't) Writers share their experiences and offer advice to those interested in becoming a professional writer. Pay it forward.
|Friday 9:00 pm: Ending Stories - Bang or Whimper? (Ends at: 9:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists: Scott Edelman, Pamela K. Kinney, Dina Leacock, Alex Shvartsman, Ian Randal Strock, Allen Wold (M)
So many short stories start out well but end abruptly or just trail off, leaving the reader to wonder, what's the point. Why does this happen and how can writers avoid this fate? How do you determine your endings? Is a twist ending a cheat?
|Friday 11:00 pm: Why Do We Like Being Scared? (Ends at: 11:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists: Holly Black, Scott Edelman, Annette Klause, Dina Leacock (M), Jon Skovron
Fear probably developed as a survival mechanism. We fear things that might hurt us. Yet many read horror, go to slasher films, ride roller coasters, and climb cliffs. Why? What does this say about us and our psyches?
