Description of Program
Some science fiction classics are so steeped in the time they were written, they are painful to read now. In some ways, getting the technology wrong is secondary to getting the sociology wrong, as when sexism and racism rear their now-ugly heads. What classic novels show their age but are still a pleasure to read, and which make us wince?
|Friday 6:00 pm: What Ever Happened to the Standalone Novel? (Ends at: 6:55 pm) Bethesda|
Panelists:Anthony Dobranski, William Freedman, Barbara Krasnoff (M), Darcy Wold
These days it seems like every book is part of a series. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the standalone novel and why has it become so rare? What are good recent standalone novels?
|Saturday 10:00 am: Tap That Muse: Where Ideas Come From (Ends at: 10:55 am) Salon A|
Panelists:Jeanne Adams, Sarah Beth Durst, Barbara Krasnoff (M), J. J. Smith, Joan Wendland
Non-writers often ask authors about this, as if writers have access to some secret, and limited, stash
which they are unwilling to share. The panel will divulge their methods for coming up with story ideas.
|Saturday 2:00 pm: Writing Gadgets Well (Ends at: 2:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists:Barbara Krasnoff, Edward M. Lerner (M), Lawrence M. Schoen, Darcy Wold
How do you work technology into your story without boring the reader? You want to make your "inventions" believable, but how much is too much?
|Sunday 12:00 pm: Dealing with Discouragement (Ends at: 12:55 pm) Bethesda|
Panelists:Marilyn "Mattie" Brahen, William Galaini, Rahul Kanakia, Barbara Krasnoff (M), James Maxey
The story you're sure is good is rejected. Your carefully crafted novel is shrugged off by several different agents. This discussion will cover personal strategies to deal with disappointments, rejection, and other setbacks.
