My Con-Volution Schedule!

cropped-2016ConvoAgeOfMonsters_withDates-100pxI’m so happy to be retruning to Con-Volution: Age of Monsters! I have so many friends at Con-Volution that I’ve come to think of it as a family reunion.

Con-Volution is happening at the Hyatt Regency SFO from Sept 30 – Oct 2. Here’s my schedule:

It’s Shirley Been 100 Years

Friday 17:00 – 18:30, Boardroom V (Hyatt Regency SFO)

In December of this year, Shirley Jackson turns 100. Best known for her story “The Lottery” (1948), Jackson has been read by teenagers across the world. But her novels The Haunting of Hill House and We Have Always Lived in the Castle endure almost as strongly. What is Jackson’s legacy to modern horror? What women are carrying her torch in today’s horror market?

Carrie Sessarego, Lillian Csernica (M)

Our Favorite Fangs- Vampires and Werewolves

Friday 21:00 – 22:30, SandPebble D (Hyatt Regency SFO)

A look at our favorite toothy monsters in fiction and media.

Shael Hawman, Fred Wiehe, Horror Author (M), Carrie Sessarego, Zoë Moss, Lex Rudd

Making Monsters: For the Love of Frankenstein

Saturday 8PM – 9:30PM, Sandpebble C

Discussing Mary Shelley, and why her monster continues to have such a strong place in genre stories through the ages

Con-volution is Coming!

I’m attending Con-volution 2015 again this year and I couldn’t be more excited. This is a mid-sized convention and one of the friendliest out there. If you are a convention pro, I recommend the convention for it’s focus on encouraging artistic and professional development. If you are new to conventions, I encourage you to attend this because you won’t find a more warm, friendly, welcoming crowd anywhere. The theme of Con-volution this year is “Legion of Fandom”, and it celebrates the amazing diversity of our community in terms of who we are and what we love!  Come hang out with me and a whole lot of people who are much cooler than I, including but not limited to:

Brianna Wu

Frank Wu

Jackie Kashian

Balogun Ojetade

Also attending are a ton of my personal colleagues and friends, including but again not limited to Jaym Gates, Steve Mix, Emerain Rich, and Marie Brennan.

Con-volution will be held Oct 2-4 2015, at the Hyatt Regency, SFO.
