tbonejenkins: (Evil smile Izumi)

This weekend is WisCon and as usual, I'll be there. I'm keeping my schedule super light this year for reasons, but here's where you can officially find me:

Friday, May 26, Caucus Room 4:00 - 5:15p
Love Love Peace Peace: What Makes a Fun Story?
As opposed to beautifully-crafted stories that tell powerful tales are funtime stories that we tell to amuse ourselves. We don't always talk about them because they are "low-brow," and we're afraid we'll be seen as less intelligent somehow. But while fun stories that make people laugh and give readers a joyride might not seem relevant, they are still important. Let's talk critically about what makes a story "fun" while considering the perspective of the marginalized for whom these stories are often laid with landmines of microaggressions and stereotypes.

Sunday, May 28, Conference Room 4 10:00-11:15a
Reading Group: Personal Demons
What haunts us, what scares us, what makes us tick. Works that deal with metaphorical and actual demons. I'll be reading from my yet to be published novella "Memphis Minnie and Sister Rosetta Tharpe Sing the Stumps Down Good".

Either Saturday or Sunday at some point
Spontaneous Programming: Gaming for Janet Elle Plato
I am putting together a short DnD game to honor the memory of Janet Elle Plato, who attended WisCon numerous times and died last summer. If you gamed with her or knew her at some level, connect with me either through social media or at WisCon. I'll post final details on the Spontaneous Programming board in the lobby.

Yes! I'll be at the POC Dinner on Friday night. Outside of that, you can catch me either in the lobby, the ConSuite or the parties. There may be times though that I'll need to introvert, so I'll disappear for a bit. Again, if you want to hang, message me on FB or Twitter. I should be around.
