Big news! My #ownvoices short story about two fishkid siblings with differing views on adoption is up at Cicada Magazine! You should be able to read the story here. Gentle reminder that though this is an #ownvoices story it is still a work of fiction. Also, I wrote this before my brother mentioned moving so that’s total coincidence 🙂
The 2018 SFWA Nebula Conference is coming up fast! It’s also my first time being on conference programming, so please excuse me while I flail about. My brief schedule is as follows:
Friday, May 18:
3:30 pm in Marquis C- The Joys and Hazards of Writing #ownvoices Fiction
5:00 pm in Marquis B- Language To Use When Writing and Speaking About Disability
I’ll be there all weekend and would love to meet up with my fellow SFF friends if you’re available.
From July 20-22, I’ll be on the programming for the Cascade Writers Three-Day intensive workshop in Tacoma, Washington. I’ll update when I have an idea of times/panels.
I’ve blogged about this org and the workshop in the past—it’s wonderful. It’s a smaller workshop that offers Milford-style critiques as well as both craft and business track programming. It’s a great way to build your writer community. Because of its smaller size, it’s easier to meet everyone and the vibe is a bit more relaxed. I found some of my critique partners here when I first attended back in 2015.
In August I’ll also be attending Worldcon 76 in San Jose. This will be my second Worldcon after previously attending Sasquan back in 2015. It’s a hugenormous convention and I’m excited to go and get my nerd on. Come say hi if you’re around!
