My Worldcon Schedule

It's almost time for MidAmeriCon II, the World Science Fiction Convention. I'll be moderating two panels this year and I'm looking forward to a lively program:

Writing Erotica
Wednesday 16:00 - 17:00, 2208 (Kansas City Convention Center)

Erotica might be said to be created to stimulate or sexually arouse the reader or viewer. We ask what the difference is between erotica and pornography, what the place of erotica is within the sf community and its works. We might share the odd tip as to what makes good -- or bad -- erotica.
Adult Content. Not for Children.
Rachael Acks, Christie Meierz , Belinda McBride, Jeffe Kennedy, Darlene Marshall (M)

The "One True Love" Narrative Trap in Young Adult Fiction...and How to Smash It!Saturday 10:00 - 11:00, 2503A (Kansas City Convention Center)

True love in YA fiction has been a mainstay of the genre, but life is rarely that simple, especially for teens...even fictional teens! Why do we fall into this trap? Authors share their tips and tricks for writing love, romance, and the teen dating scene.
Darlene Marshall (M), Sarah Beth Durst, Tessa Gratton, Peadar O Guilin, Denise Grover Swank

See you in Kansas City!
