My Updated WorldCon Schedule

July 28th, 2009 (02:55 pm)

current mood: calm

Here are the sessions I am scheduled for at WorldCon in Montreal next week. This is supposedly my final schedule, but these things are never quite final until the con starts, and sometimes not even then, so I'm assuming changes are still possible. If you're planning to attend the convention, please come to some of my sessions!

How to Pitch Your Novel...And How Not To
You're an aspiring writer, you've run into an editor or agent in a
bar. After buying them a drink, what's the next thing to do?
Talk about your just-completed novel? Thrust the printout into
their hands? Or...something else? Some advice from those
who know.
Catherine Petrini (M), Jetse de Vries, Mike Resnick, Sean
Wallace, Ginjer Buchanan


10:00 - 11:00 a.m. (855; P-524A)
Paranormal Romance for Teens

many of the "Sweet Valley High" books, and other writers who like
to romanticize vampires, werewolves, and zombies. (Teen
programming track.)

Kerrie Hughes, Victoria Janssen
