It’s been a few weeks since my last post. I haven’t had much news to report – I’ve mostly been working on stories that will be published later this year or early 2022. If everything goes to plan, I’ll have 3 more stories coming out in 2021, the first of which is “Questions Asked in the Belly of the World” which will be published at Tor.com on September 29th!
In the meantime, I will be at Capclave on Oct. 1st – Oct 3rd. I’m so excited and it’ll be wonderful to meet up with old friends and make new ones.
Here’s my schedule:
- Non Traditional Protagonists – Saturday, Oct 2nd @ 11am EST
- Description: The typical protagonist is an unmarried young white male (or more recently female). But what about protagonists who don’t fit this mold. What about older characters, non-white characters, and characters with disabilities or handicaps? How does changing the protagonist change the story? And are there stories that require such a character to be told?
- Panelists: Peter S. Beagle, Mary Fan, A. T. Greenblatt, J. S. Kelley, Jennifer Povey (M)
- Why Write Short Stories – Saturday, Oct 2nd @ 12pm EST
- Description: Writers of short stories get paid pennies per word. Why write short stories when the time could be used for more profitable novels? What can short stories do that novels cannot?
- Panelists: Neil Clarke, A. T. Greenblatt (M), Brian Hugenbruch, Jennifer Povey, Darrell Schweitzer
- Author Reading – Saturday, Oct 2nd @ 3:30pm EST
- Don’t know what I’ll read yet. Open to suggestions.
If you’re going to be at the conference, please feel free to come and say hello!
