I appear on the following panels with, among others, Nisi Shawl and Mary Robinette Kowal. I’m quite excited. My first time in Portland.
Sat Nov 13, 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.: Gender and Writing
Gender free? Gender neutral? Stereotyping? How gender affects our writing. What writers do to write effectively in the opposite gender’s point of view, and whether they really do get away with it.
Nisi Shawl, Keffy R. M. Kehrli, J. A. Pitts, Craig Gidney, and Donna McMahon in Jefferson/Adams
Sat Nov 13, 12:00 noon – 1:00 p.m.: Writing the Other: Races and Cultures
Speculative fiction often takes steps toward being more egalitarian, but there are still huge challenges ahead. Issues of appropriation, respect, stereotypes, and taking chances. How to get educated and still write naturally and from the heart.
Nisi Shawl, Donna McMahon, Rory Miller, Craig Gidney, and Mary Robinette Kowal in Roosevelt.
