Final World Con Schedule

Posted by tmphillips on August 18, 2013 at 11:25 AM

Hi all,


Well World Con is going to be a busy time. I now have six panels, one demo, one podcast interview and a Codex breakfast. There's also a Ghost Walking Tour of San Antonio that starts at the Alamo on the first night. Sounds like fun if I can make it.


Below are the official events. It's going to be a fun con!

Friday 19:00 - 20:00


In addition to a special docent tour offered by John Hertz, here are some of the artist presentations on offer: 1. Trina Phillips, Frame & Protect Artwork 2. Loren Damewood, Bracelet Tying 3. Judy Peterson, Puzzle Cutting & Design 4. Carole Parker, Shibori Dyeing Techniques 5. John Wardale, Hair Braiding pt. 2


Keeping Control of a Long Series

Friday 21:00 - 22:00


So many participants, so many events, written over so many years -- is writing a long series more like wrestling a snake than writing a single volume novel?
