Short Stories that Promote Your Work Pendleton Fri Nov 17 12:00pm-1:00pm

Some authors write short stories to promote their work by introducing their setting, a backstory for a character, or some other device. What works and doesn’t work, and how to develop short story ideas that will entice readers to the rest of your books while maintaining enough of a standalone feeling to attract editors that acquire short fiction. Shawna Reppert, David Levine, Elton Elliott, Ann Gimpel, Mary Rosenblum

Endings: Cuddling with the Reader Pendleton Fri Nov 17 3:00pm-4:00pm

You’ve just blown your reader’s mind with your story’s climax. Make sure they’ll come back for more–give them a good denouement! Irene Radford, Dale Ivan Smith, Esther Jones, Ann Gimpel, Leigh Goodison, Shawna Reppert

Fantasy as Political Allegory Pendleton Fri Nov 17 9:00pm-10:00pm

We live in “interesting times” for sure. How does the Fantasy genre speak to current events? The Vorkosigan series, The Others series by Anne Bishop, and the Discworld books of course. What else? K.G. (Karen) Anderson, Marshall Ryan Maresca, Craig English, Shawna Reppert

Backstory: Too Much, Too Little, Just Right Pendleton Sat Nov 18 4:00pm-5:00pm

What to use, what to lose, and how to deliver a great backstory without losing the readers that want to read about the here and now right now. Shawna Reppert, Kristin Landon, Mary Rosenblum, Randy Henderson, Sheila Finch

Ghost in the Vegan Bar Lion Kings Den – 266 Sat Nov 18 8:00pm-9:00pm

The Pacific Northwest is known for our haunted spots. Where are they? What are their stories? Where is the “proof”? Tori Centanni, Shawna Reppert, K. M. Alexander

How to Write a Series Pendleton Sun Nov 19 12:00pm-1:00pm

Where to start, and how long of a series you can (or should?) write. How to make it interesting, different, and hopefully successful, and stay in love with it. John A Pitts, Randy Henderson, David Levine, Shawna Reppert, Sheila Simonson, Dean Wells
