Preliminary Program Grid for Joan Wendland
This is the Preliminary program schedule. Joan Wendland 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.

Steampunk genre caught on in ways nobody expected, spawning offspring genres (Dieselpunk, Atompunk, Clockpunk, etc.) achieve the same popularity? The panel will discuss these new subgenres, what defines them, and their staying power.

Panelists:Jack Campbell - John G. Hemry, Meriah Lysistrata Crawford (M), Mike McPhail, Joan Wendland, Martin Wilsey
Some scientists and engineers shy away from writing SF because they fear they can't write well. Some liberal arts majors don't attempt SF because they don't think they know enough science. Panelists will give both types some advice to overcome their qualms.

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 1:00 pm: Literary Inspirations (Ends at: 1:55 pm) Bethesda|
Panelists:Scott Edelman, J. J. Smith, Lee Strong (M), Joan Wendland

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?
