Posting this a little early, but if you’re planning on attending Norwescon next month, c’mon by and say hello!
Creature Feature: Monsters of Urban Fantasy
Fri 5:00pm-6:00pm Cascade 6
Werewolves, Vampires, and Trolls, oh my! We all have favorites among the vast number of creatures that inhabit urban fantasy alongside humans. What are they – and why? Do the fantasy archetypes (vampire, werewolf, fairy, and so on) 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?
Kat Richardson (M), Ann Gimpel, Rhiannon Held
Sat 1:00pm-2:00pm Evergreen 1&2
How can you tell one werewolf universe from all the others? Or one alien planet from the next? We’ll talk about worldbuilding and how to make the world you’re building in your story stand out from the competition.
Brenda Carre (M), Rhiannon Held, Nancy Kress, Pat MacEwen, Angel Leigh McCoy
