Worldcon 2021 Schedule

I’ve been under deadlines for the last few weeks and I’m only just getting to this post now. I’m literally sitting in the hotel lobby as I write this. Which is to say I’ll be at Discon III (aka WorldCon 2021) this weekend! In person! I’m excited to see people in real life again.

Here’s my schedule:

Thursday, Dec 16th, 11:30 AM  –  Kaffeeklatsch with A. T. Greenblatt – Suite 325 Side Room              
Thursday, Dec 16th, 1:00 PM  – Signing – A.T. Greenblatt – Autograph 3  

Friday, Dec 17th, 7:00 PM – Panel –  Writing Short Fiction – Blue Room

Saturday, Dec 18th, 10:00 AM – Panel –  Story Structures Besides the Hero’s Journey – Older
Saturday, Dec 18th, 4:00 PM  –  Panel –  Why Do We Love Novellas and Novelettes? – Cabinet Room  
Saturday, Dec 18th, 8:00 PM –    Hugo Award Ceremonies!        

The Hugo will be streamed on Saturday night and I’ll update this post with the link when I have it.

In the meantime, please feel free to come say hello to me if you are at the convention. Apologies in advance – I’m terrible with faces in the best of times, so if I don’t recognize you, it’s not personal.
               

WorldCon 2019 Dublin Schedule

I’ve just returned from Launch Pad, which was fantastic and I hope to have a write up about it soon. But in the meantime, here’s my schedule for WorldCon!

Liking problematic things

When: 15 Aug 2019, Thursday 12:00 – 12:50, Liffey Hall-2 (CCD)

Description: What happens when you find out that something you really love is sexist, racist, homophobic, ableist, or similarly problematic – or that a performer, director, or producer whose work you liked a lot is not who you thought they were? Can you still enjoy problematic creations? How do you reconcile your enjoyment with your values? Our panellists have felt your pain and have some tips to share.

Panelists: Leo Adams, A. T. Greenblatt, Sam Hawke, Sarah Gulde (M) \

Autographs: Friday at 16:00

16 Aug 2019, Friday 16:00 – 16:50, Level 4 Foyer (CCD)

Participants: Alex Acks, Regina Kanyu Wang, A.J. Hackwith, Dr. Mary Watson, Jo Zebedee, A. T. Greenblatt

Kaffeeklatsch: A. T. Greenblatt

18 Aug 2019, Sunday 14:00 – 14:50, Level 3 Foyer (KK/LB) (CCD)

Using science in fantasy writing

When: 18 Aug 2019, Sunday 16:00 – 16:50, Wicklow Hall-1 (CCD)

Description: When do you use science in fantasy? Whether you are dealing with medical problems, outbreaks of disease, or aspects of technology, how can these be integrated with fantasy – and what makes it different from SF?

Panelists: Ginjer Buchanan (Penguin Random House), Joe Abercrombie, A. T. Greenblatt , Peter Adrian Behravesh (PodCastle), Jo Walton (M)

I’ve never had a Kaffeeklatsch before, so that should be fun. If you’re going to be in Dublin, feel free to come and say hello!
