Preliminary Program Grid for Michael A. Ventrella

This is the Preliminary program schedule. Michael A. Ventrella 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.

Many novels these days change history slightly -- and fail. What does it take to make a good alternate history plot?

Panelists:Anthony Dobranski, Hugh Taylor, Michael A. Ventrella (M)
Heroes, villains, and moral relativism. Does speculative literature have any concept of Good or Evil anymore?

Saturday 1:00 pm: Social Media Promotion Without Being Obnoxious (Ends at: 1:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists:Kate Baker, Inge Heyer, Natalie Luhrs, Michael A. Ventrella (M)
Promoting yourself these days is a requirement for any writer. How can you do so without alienating everyone?

Panelists:Walter H. Hunt, Hildy Silverman, Ian Randal Strock, Michael A. Ventrella (M)
The worst science fiction story ever written gets a reading by our brave panel as they compete to go the longest without tripping over a misspelled word or laughing uncontrollably. Audience members are also encouraged to take a chance. Can you keep a straight face, especially when the panel begins acting out the story?
Sunday 12:00 pm: It's a Conspiracy! (Ends at: 12:55 pm) Frederick
Panelists:T. Eric Bakutis, Carolyn Ives Gilman, Michael A. Ventrella, Joan Wendland (M)
Why are we so willing to believe that everyone is out to get us? How does this appeal to us in books and movies, even if we don't believe them?
