My World Horror Schedule

logo for World Horror 2015This year is the 25th anniversary of the World Horror Convention, and I’ll be in attendance in Atlanta. Really looking forward to the panels, readings, and catching up with friends. In terms of what I’m doing, there’s a panel on research, and I’ve also organized a group reading that may be of interest…

Friday, May 8

5-6 PM            Panel: SCAREBIZ: Just the Facts, Monster: How to Dig Deeper than the Internet for Accurate Storytelling   – R’LYEH

An incorrect fact or detail in a story can pull a reader right out of your narrative and destroy the impact of an otherwise excellent piece of fiction. Writers who also are research professionals (librarians, archivists or journalists) share their insider tips to help you avoid the factcheck trap.

Topics cover will include Net and bricks-and-mortar resources you may not know about, how to approach experts, how to vet sources, maximizing a trip to an archives or library, and more? What was their greatest research challenge and how did they solve it?

Moderator: J. T. Glover. Panelists: Courtney Alameda, James Dorr, Cynthia Lott, Loren Rhoads, Matthew Weber

Saturday, May 9

10 AM            Dead in the Morning

Group reading featuring Jesse Bullington, Selena Chambers, Orrin Grey, J.T. Glover, and Molly Tanzer. Location TBA.
