Excitingly the Book Track info is up over at the NineWorlds website for the massive 2013 Geekfest taking place in London in August later this year, i.e. a few weeks away.
I’m taking part in two events:
22:15 – 23:30
NEW VOICES SLAM SESSION: FRIDAY EDITION.
Come listen to short readings from nine of science fiction and fantasy’s most promising new authors. Bring your drinks, bring your friends: you might find your next literary addiction. Get to know these guys before they sell out!
Liz de Jager, Stephanie Saulter, Adam Christopher, Rochita Loenen-Ruiz, Emma Newman, Barry Nugent, Danie Ware, Jennifer Williams, Laure Eve (tbc)
Hannah Chutzpah (emcee)
20:30 – 21:45
TEENAGE KICKS: WRITING FOR YOUNG ADULT AUDIENCES
Authors and editors of young adult fiction discuss writing for teenagers: how is it different from adult fiction? What are the current trends? Most
importantly, how long can the panellists go without mentioning the Twilight series?
Liz de Jager, Tom Pollock, Cory Doctorow, Catherine Banner
Amanda Rutter, Strange Chemistry editor leading the talk
And for the rest of the time, I will be fan-girling and panicking with other debut authors (I’m looking at you Jen Williams!) for the rest of the weekend. Do check out the Books track but also all the other fun stuff that’s happening. This here link will take you to the main NineWorlds page.
Hope to see you guys there!
