Preliminary Program Grid for Lawrence M. Schoen

This is the Preliminary program schedule. Lawrence M. Schoen 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 3:00 pm: "Holy Shuftik!" He Cried. (Ends at: 3:55 pm) Frederick
Panelists:Jeanne Adams (M), Lawrence M. Schoen, Jon Skovron
How does an author create a distinctive language for characters in the future or in a different world and keep it understandable to the reader?  What's the right balance between creating language and making sure the reader can figure it out without a dictionary appendix to the story?
Friday 4:00 pm: Hypnotism: Reality vs. Fiction (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Seneca
Panelists:Lawrence M. Schoen
Lawrence M. Schoen lecture on how hypnotism really works vs. how it is portrayed in fiction and on screen.

Author:Lawrence M. Schoen
Saturday 4:00 pm: Anthology Builder (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Frederick
Panelists:Neil Clarke, Ron Garner, Joshua Palmatier (M), Lawrence M. Schoen, Darrell Schweitzer
So you want to edit and publish an anthology. How do the stories get picked? How do you come up with a theme? What sells and what doesn't? How do authors produce readable fiction in the straitjacket of an original themed anthology? How do you properly curate your anthology?
Sunday 10:00 am: Abusing Authors (Ends at: 10:55 am) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists:Sarah Avery, Scott Edelman, Will McIntosh (M), Lawrence M. Schoen, Ian Randal Strock, Michael A. Ventrella
Panelists answer whatever questions the audience has on writing, editing, character development, agents, and others. Includes many non-writer-parts-of-being-a-writer, such as being your own boss, setting schedules, and so on.
