Since Christopher's put up some info about one of the things we'll both be doing at Wiscon, I figured I'd put up my schedule. My scheduled schedule, I mean. All of my stuff turns out to be on Saturday, so the rest of my convention is blissfully schedule-free (with some must-attends, like the Annual Ratbastard Throwdown now with karaoke, the reading by Karen, Kessel and Richard and the reading by Mr. Rowe, Ms. Link and Mr. Grant, etc.). There doesn't appear to be a scary medical panel this year, which makes me sad.

Anyway, my programming items:

Journals and Blogs---threat or menace?

*Capitol B* Saturday, 2:30-3:45 p.m.

With the proliferation of on-line journals, are writers being "used up" by keeping their blog up to date? Is it a writing tool, or a way of avoiding working on your writing projects? Or are the networking and feedback possibilities worth the time?

M: Cheryl Myfanwy Morgan, Gwenda Bond, Tim Pratt, Susan Harris, Victoria D McManus, Susan Marie Groppi

I'm coming down on the phantom menace side at the moment. But should be fun, with panelmates Tim and Susan.

Cybernetic Magnolias: Southern Women Writing Genre Fiction

*Caucus Room* Saturday, 4:00-5:15 p.m.

This summer, Tor Books will publish Crossroads: Tales of the Southern Literary Fantastic. As with American letters in general, genre fiction has a rich tradition of work with a Southern accent. Six of the contributors to Crossroads are women; are women more or less likely than men to use regional concerns in genre work? Women writing "Southern" outside the genre are easy to name--everyone from Flannery O'Connor to Lee Smith. But who are the women writing (or who have written) "Southern" science fiction and fantasy?

M: Christopher Rowe, Gwenda Bond, Richard Butner, Kelly D. Link

Help us, please!

And finally, and most exciting of all:

New Wave YA Reading

*Conference Room 2* Saturday, 10:30-11:45 p.m.

Hipster young adult writers trot their stuff.

Scott Westerfeld, Justine Larbalestier, Gwenda Bond, Christopher Barzak

There will be drinking and I'm still trying to decide which chapter to read from (though I'll probably be obvious and do the first one).

So, there they are. The times and places I'm guaranteed to be over Memorial Day weekend. Other than that, look in the bar or for bicycles streaking around the lake.

worm: "Palmcorder Yajna," Mountain Goats

thingy/s to check out: "The Voluntary State" at Sci Fiction
