Preliminary Program Grid for Will McIntosh
This is the Preliminary program schedule. Will McIntosh 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: Antagonist Vs. Villain (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists:Carolyn Ives Gilman, Alan Loewen (M), Will McIntosh, Christie Meierz
Not all antagonists are villains. What is the difference? Why would authors use a non-villain antagonist? Who are some of the best non-villain antagonists in SF?
|Saturday 11:00 am: Movie Adaptations of Books (Ends at: 11:55 am) Salon A|
Panelists:Roger MacBride Allen, Will McIntosh, Sherin Nicole, Elaine Stiles (M)
Don't judge a book by its movie. Why does Hollywood turn great books into messes? What adaptions work and don't work and why? Who is to blame? How can fans and writers get better adaptations?
|Saturday 5:00 pm: Why the YA Explosion? (Ends at: 5:55 pm) Salon A|
Panelists:Martin Berman-Gorvine, John G. Hemry (M), Will McIntosh, Darcy Wold
Current market figures for YA SF&F are by some measures eleven times the size of adult SF, and six times the size of adult fantasy. Is this just good marketing, or is something more profound happening here? Why are so many people reading YA fiction?
|Saturday 6:00 pm: Building Your Audience (Ends at: 6:55 pm) Bethesda|
Panelists:Kate Baker (M), Scott Edelman, Will McIntosh, Michael A. Ventrella
Now that you finished your book and found a publisher, how do you get people to read it? What promotional devices work and what turns potential readers off? And, after you've published three or four books, what can you do to expand your readership and get readers of your newest book to look at your older ones?
|Sunday 12:30 pm: Reading - Will McIntosh (Ends at: 12:55 pm) Frederick|
