I’m at the Nebula Convention this weekend in Los Angeles! Here’s my schedule:
Writing on the Side – Thursday, May 16th at 5:00 pm
- How to be a productive writer when your life is already time-starved, list-bound and career-committed.
- Panelist: Caitlin Starling, K. A. Doore, A. T. Greenblatt, Mark Tompkins
The Why and How of Accessibility Guidelines – May 17th, 2:00 pm
- People with disabilities used to be hidden away as a matter of course. Buildings were not built to be accommodating and that excluded people from participating fully in society. That began to change with Franklin Delano Roosevelt, but he had to travel with a portable ramp. It took another sixty years to pass the Americans with Disabilities Act. In the 21st century, people still fight for access. The goal of The Accessibility Checklist for SFWA Spaces is full accessibility to all participants, attendees, and guests of SFWA events such as the Nebula Conference. Our panelists give examples of the experiences that drove it, discuss the importance of its creation, and how it’s being used by SFWA and convention-runners all around the country. As we move forward, what should the future of accessibility look like?
- Panelist: Lee Martindale, K. A. Doore, A. T. Greenblatt, Mark Tompkins
Mass Autographing – Saturday, May 18th, 1:30 pm
