Steampunk Panel for FanX 2016!

In almost every writing conference, symposium, and comic con, you’ll mostly find a panel that discusses Steampunk.

There’s a good reason for this.

It’s because Steampunk is cool–very cool.

Because I’ve written a couple of short stories in a steampunk world, I was asked to be on a panel and sit with some amazing panelists at this year’s Salt Lake Comic Con FanX. Here’s who will be there:

And it’s being moderated by the great Dave Butler.

When you get a steampunk panel together, I’ve found that you never quite know what will happen, partially because a lot of what makes up steampunk is based on their own interpretation. Steampunk is a written genre, an artistic movement, and a fashion style. Personally, I think it’s because it’s still evolving.

If you’re attending this year’s FanX March 24-26 and you’d like to know more about Steampunk, check us out Steampunk: Beyond Goggles, Friday, 6pm in room 150G. It’s going to be great!

FanX 2016 Panel–Not For The Faint Of Heart: Being A Resilient Writer

A couple of weeks ago those doing Herculean work preparing for this year’s Salt Lake Comic Con FanX sent out the panel schedule.

I LOVED what panels they asked me to do. They’re fantastic, and I can’t wait for next week. But as I checked the FanX iPhone app yesterday, I noticed a panel that I had previously missed.

And I LOVE this new one, too!

On Thursday, 2-3pm in room 255B I will be part of a group talking about being a resilient writer. The title for the panel is: Not for the Faint of Heart: Being a Resilient Writer. There will be seven of us explaining the things that have worked for us, and the things that don’t. I hope, if you’re attending the event and would like help in this area, that you schedule time to check us out.

Also, I get to be on a panel with the spectacularly awesome Craig Nybo and the incredibly talented Rebecca Moesta (actually, Craig is incredibly talented and Rebecca is spectacularly awesome, too…). The other panelists, Shannon Camp, James R. Tuck, Cindy Grigg, and Courtney Alameda, I hope to get to know as well.

Are you a resilient writer? If not, spend an hour with us!
