I’ll be attending FOGcon in the Bay Area of California this weekend (March 7-9th), along with other authors, fans, and members of the community. The Honored Guests are Seanan McGuire, Tim Powers, who are both powerhouse writers and pillars of the community. The Honored Ghost is James Tiptree, Jr. (aka Alice Sheldon), who was one of my favorite writers of feminist SF.
In addition to reuniting with my beloved college and post-college writing group, I’m going to be on paneling and hope to meet some readers and members of the local SF/F community.
Here’s my schedule:
|Networking 101 for Writers||participant||Sat, 9:00–10:15 am||Salon A/B|
|Secrets of the Writing World||participant||Sat, 1:30–2:45 pm||Sacramento|
|Reading: Brennan, Helms, Underwood||participant||Sat, 4:30–5:45 pm||Santa Rosa|
I’m particularly excited about the reading, as the three of us (Marie Brennan, Alyc Helms, and myself) are all member of the aforementioned writers’ group. These folks helped me get my start, and it’s great for us to all now be on programming together as colleagues.
If you see me at the con, please come up and say hello! Meeting new people is one of my favorite parts of conventions.
