I'm heading to WisCon, the feminist science fiction and fantasy convention, in Madison this weekend! I'm so very excited to catch up with old friends from Odyssey, Clarion, AND my online writing group--and for my first paneling experience! Here's my schedule of events:
Wait...This is About Sex?
Saturday, May 27, 8:30 a.m. to 9:45 a.m., in Capitol A.
All about secret sexual symbols and themes in our favorite fairytales.
Red as Blood: Women and Gothic Horror
Saturday, May 27, 1 p.m. to 2:15 p.m., in Caucus
All about women in the Gothic, and where we see this oh-so-delightful genre heading in the future.
All Our Favorite Nightmares, Obsessions, and Inhuman Familiars
Saturday, May 27, 4 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. at Michelangelo's Coffee House
I'll be reading with my critique partners Julie C. Day, Kat Köhler, and Sarah Read. Come for the cool dragon poster (seriously, it's really cool); stay for the dark literary feminist fiction.
Book release fête: Speaking to Skull Kings and Other Stories
Saturday, May 27, 8 p.m., location TBA
I'll be celebrating the release of my first short story collection, Speaking to Skull Kings and Other Stories. The location is TBA (stay tuned), but there will definitely be free drinks and snacks, as well as frolicking.
Hope to see you there!
