Preliminary Program Grid for Barbara Krasnoff
This is the Preliminary program schedule. Barbara Krasnoff 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: Your Day Job As Your Muse (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Salon A|
Panelists:Barbara Krasnoff, Sarah Pinsker (M), Lawrence M. Schoen
SF writers who work for NASA have it easy. What about the rest of us? How does your day job influence what you write when you are off the clock? Do you base characters on coworkers? Turn daydreams of being the corporate hero into your creative works?
|Friday 5:00 pm: Crowdfunding & Alternative Funding for Writers (Ends at: 5:55 pm) Bethesda|
Panelists:Bill Campbell, Neil Clarke, Barbara Krasnoff (M), Alex Shvartsman
Traditionally, publishers gave authors an advance on royalties in exchange for the completed manuscript. Today, some writers are receiving alternate revenue streams including crowdfunding of anthologies and novels in advance by the public, serialization in which the author releases a chapter (or story) as long as readers continue to fund it, and electronic self-publishing. What methods have you used and what works? What new methods do you see in the future? How will this change the creation of books?
|Friday 7:30 pm: Reading - Barbara Krasnoff (Ends at: 7:55 pm) Frederick|
|Saturday 4:00 pm: Linguistics In SF (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Bethesda|
Panelists:Tom Doyle, Barbara Krasnoff (M), C.S. MacCath, Lawrence M. Schoen
What are some of the creative ways writers use language and linguistics in their fictions? How can language be used as a weapon or to unite different peoples? How can writers portray linguistic differences in a way that is not condescending?
