Preliminary Program Grid for David Walton
This is the Preliminary program schedule. David Walton 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: Writing on the Job (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists:Brenda W. Clough, Barbara Krasnoff (M), Joshua Palmatier, Lezli Robyn, David Walton
Is it better for a writer to have a non-writing job to save his/her writing energies for fiction or to use writing skills to make a nonfiction living on the idea that any writing improves fiction writing? And when should you quit your day job? Hear writers discuss the relationship between their day job and their writing.
|Friday 5:30 pm: David Walton Reading (Ends at: 5:55 pm) Bethesda|
|Saturday 10:00 am: Does Hard Science Fiction Have to be Opaque to Non-Techies? (Ends at: 10:55 am) Frederick|
Panelists:Jack Campbell - John G. Hemry, Mike McPhail, Nalin A. Ratnayake, Ian Randal Strock (M), David Walton
Panelists will discuss how writing about quantum computing, string theory, nanotechnology, genetics, chemistry, rocket science, etc., can be done in a way that is scientifically accurate, yet understandable by people who have no science background past high school and maybe college distribution requirement. E.g. making Bose-Einstein Condensate understandable to someone who never got past "physics for poets."
