|Saturday – 10 AM • The Phoenix: CREATIVE WRITING MASTER CLASS Joanne Harris (Chocolat) and I will do our best to offer a few helpful suggestions for aspiring writers.
Saturday – 11:40 AM • The Phoenix: SPEED ADVICE. I’ll be one of over a dozen writers you can meet and sit with to talk about your own writing; you get twenty minutes with the writer of your choice before you have to move on. It’s a little like speed dating except no one gets kissed and all we talk about is the business of make-believe.
Saturday – 1PM – Foyle’s: SIGNING. Here’s where I prove I can spell my own name, again and again and AGAIN, for your sadistic pleasure.
Saturday – 5:20PM – Foyle’s: MONSTER MASH. I’ll be there with Joanne Harris, Kristen Ciccarelli, and Jon Wallace, presumably for a very brief discussion, in which we all agree the alien in John Carpenter’s The Thing mops the floor with all other monsters. Right??? I mean, is there really any debate?
Saturday – 6PM – Foyle’s: SIGNING. Because it’s so nice we gotta do it twice!
Sunday – 1PM – Foyle’s: HOW IT ALL BEGAN. For this one, I’ll be sitting down with Joanne, Alastair Reynolds, Elizabeth May, and Kristen Ciccarelli to unfold our secret origin stories, and maybe offer some ideas about how you might begin your own professional adventure in the arts.
Sunday – 4PM – Foyle’s: SIGNING. If there is, in fact, anyone left to sign for.
