It’s that time again! Here’s my schedule for Norwescon:
Friday 2 pm Cascade 6
What are our favorite fantasy creatures, and why? Do the fantasy archetypes (vampire, werewolf, fairy, etc.) give us a shortcut to understanding a particular character and their motivation? How do authors use these creatures as metaphors for our own personalities and desires?
Sir R.L. McSterlingthong (M), Rhiannon Held, Duane Wilkins, Heather Hudson
Friday 7 pm Cascade 5
Residential Writing Workshops: Clarion and More
Learn about the major genre workshops like Clarion, Clarion West, Odyssey, Viable Paradise, and more. Are you ready to attend a residential workshop? What will you learn? Each workshop has advantages and disadvantages, so which workshop will work best for you?
Rhiannon Held (M), Tina Connolly, Erin A. Tidwell, K.C. Ball
Saturday 12:30 pm Cascade 1
Rhiannon Held reads Silver
An urban fantasy novel Rated PG
Saturday 5 pm Cascade 8
How I Sold My Novel
Some debut novelists discuss the path they took in selling their first novel.
Rhiannon Held (M), Dennis R. Upkins, Christopher Paul Carey
Sunday 1 pm Cascade 3&4
The Art of Critique
A writer must learn to critique both her own work and the work of peers. What makes a good critique? How do you critique yourself and how do you critique someone else?

Also, I have a giveaway going on, that will finish a little after the con. Get a signed ARC of SILVER and read it before it’s released!
