SJI Library Writers Open Mic

Tomorrow night I’m going to visit the San Juan Island Library Writers’ Open Mic. I’ll only be around for the first portion, but I’m happy to revisit this event that’s been ongoing for years, hosted by Pamela Herber of Shadowspinners Press. Welcome visitors, works in progress, published authors, written media variety, all genre. Open format round robin.

My schedule has been announced for Worldcon 75:

Writers and Artists

Wednesday 20:30 – 21:30, 209 (Messukeskus)

How authors interact with illustrators. How SFF covers are created. What visions behind those images.

Barbara G. Tarn (M), Maurizio Manzieri, Valerie Purcell, Zach Dodson, Eva L. Elasigue

Ensemble Casts

Thursday 15:00 – 16:00, 203a (Messukeskus)

The Crew, the Band, the League, the Fellowship – what makes a good ensemble cast for a series of novels or a television show? Are these ensembles diverse or stuck in their ways?

Eva L. Elasigue, Gang Tan, Anne-Marie Tuikka
