Preliminary Program Grid for Sarah Pinsker
This is the Preliminary program schedule. Sarah Pinsker 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: Getting Into Short Fiction (Ends at: 5:55 pm) Frederick|
Panelists:Jim Freund (M), Dina Leacock, Sarah Pinsker, Gordon Van Gelder
What are some of the best resources for someone who wants to start reading shorter fiction? What are good habits to adopt, and expectations to foster?
|Friday 9:00 pm: The Right Length For Your Story (Ends at: 9:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists:Scott H. Andrews (M), Sarah Avery, Sarah Pinsker, Gordon Van Gelder
A short story is not a condensed novel. How do you know if your idea will require a story, novella, novel, or trilogy? When you edit, what makes you decide if it should be expanded or shortened? Were you ever surprised what a work took a different form? Which expansions of shorter works into novels work and which do not?
|Saturday 10:00 am: Tiptree Retrospective (Ends at: 10:55 am) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists:Scott Edelman, Jim Freund, Cathy Green, Sarah Pinsker
Alice Sheldon, who wrote as James Triptree Jr. was born 100 years ago. She was a complex individual who kept her true identity secret even from the many writers who communicated with her by mail. Robert Silverberg famously wrote that only a man could have written Triptree's stories. What did she have to say and what was her best work? Why is she important to the field?
