My Worldcon 2018 Schedule

I'll be in San Jose next week for Worldcon 76, and wonder of wonders, I am actually scheduled to be on some programming items! Here's where you can find me:

FRIDAY, 17 Aug 2018

SFWA Business Meeting
08:00 - 10:00, 210DH (San Jose Convention Center)
All SFWA members are welcome!
Cat Rambo (M), Kate Baker, Curtis Chen, Andy Duncan, Erin M. Hartshorn, Jeffe Kennedy, Terra LeMay, Sarah Pinsker, Lawrence M. Schoen, Steven Silver, Nathan Lowell

Autograph Session 1 of 2
12:00 - 12:30, SFWA autographing table (exhibit hall)
I'll sign anything except body parts! You can also pick up a FREE Kangaroo-themed postcard from Mars or the Moon.

Lighting a Creative Spark Without Burning Out
14:00 - 15:00, 211C (San Jose Convention Center)
An entire novel in a month? A new song every week for a year? A drawing a day for a 31 days? Time-based artistic challenges like NaNoWriMo, the Song A Week Challenge, Inktober, National Poetry Writing Month, and others can stretch your creative chops, but they might also burn you out. Our panelists will discuss their experiences with creativity challenges. Learn what worked for them and what didn’t, how they were impacted when they did not meet their goals, and what success meant for each of them.
Pablo Defendini (M), Cameron Steiman, Curtis Chen, Sara Felix

What Can SFWA Offer Me?
15:00 - 16:00, 210F (San Jose Convention Center)
Learn what SFWA has to offer authors at all stages of their careers, from networking opportunities to sample contracts to the grievance committee. SFWA's officers will provide an update on what SFWA is doing and where the organization is going and answer questions from potential (or current) members.
Kate Baker (M), Cat Rambo, Curtis Chen, Erin M. Hartshorn, Jeffe Kennedy, Lawrence M. Schoen

SATURDAY, 18 Aug 2018

Autograph Session 2 of 2
12:00 - 12:30, SFWA autographing table (exhibit hall)
I mean it, folks. NO BODY PARTS. Maybe you have the August 2018 issue of Locus Magazine, which includes an interview with me? Or the March/April 2018 issue of Playboy Magazine, which includes my short story "Go, Space Racer!"? Or even a hardcover of my award-nominated debut novel, Waypoint Kangaroo, or the sequel, Kangaroo Too? You gotta work with me here.

MONDAY, 20 Aug 2018

Reading with Zandra Renwick
14:30 - 15:00, 211A (San Jose Convention Center)
My awesome friend Zandra is very generously sharing her reading time slot with me! Come let us share some words with you before the closing of the con.


On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights I'll be staffing the SFWA Member Hospitality Suite (open to SFWA members and their guests only; members, check your email for details in The Singularity #49). Otherwise I'll generally be around. Probably at the bar.

Follow me on Twitter for the latest updates!
