I will be attending Foolscap on Friday and Saturday as a panelist. Below is my schedule. Feel free to come by and say hello.

Fri 9-10:30 pm - Which Stories Matter? The world contains an infinite number of stories; some pass by and are gone, while others are revisited over and over. Which stories matter to us? To the world? To the future? What makes a story important?
  • Jennifer Brozek (M)
  • David Levine
  • Nick Fraser
  • Mark Ferrari
  • Amy Thomson

    Fri 10:30-11 pm - Strut Your Stuff - Jennifer Brozek: Reading
    (I am not certain what I will be reading yet. It may be something from "In a Gilded Light" or my story from the "Grants Pass" anthology.)

    Sat 11 am - noon - Clothing as character: Does a character's clothing change your view of the character? Can clothing flesh out a character? Can there be too much description, so that the clothes are wearing the character instead? In this panel, we'll discuss how to use descriptions of clothing effectively to enrich characters and stories.

    Sat 3-4:40 pm - The Next Great Plague In 2009, the world is officially facing two worldwide pandemics, H1N1 influenza and HIV/AIDS. In the past, there have been cholera, other influenzas, plagues, and poxes; the future may contain viral hemorrhagic fevers and antibiotic-resistant bacteria. What's the next thing that's likely to make us all sick, and what can we do about it? If you want to write about pandemics, what's plausible?

    Oh, if you want info for that last panel my mom specializes in pandemic care and control. Too blah to remember technical terms but if you want some resources or something I could ask her for you...
