I have been once before,
I will be arriving in Denver on 5th August around lunchtime and leaving on the morning of the 11th. I'll be staying at the Hyatt Regency. So look me up if you are going too!
Here's my tentative programme for the convention, which I will confirm closer to the date):
I am on three panels:
- Writing in Spite of Your Environment
This one should be real fun - and it is something close to my heart. I can write anywhere, and I reckon it is an essential aid to writers to have this ability!
- A World Made of Birds:
What would the Earth be like if the Dinosaurs Had Lived?
- Using Myths to Kick Off a Fantasy World
I actually don't use myths as inspiration, so I will have to do a bit of chatting about writers who do. Any suggestions anyone? People as disparate as Juliet Marillier, Marion Zimmer Bradley and Guy Gavriel Kay all spring to mind.
