Worldcon Schedule – Dublin2019

I’ll be at the Dublin Worldcon later this month. Here’s the program items I’ll be involved in:

Short fiction of 2018
16 Aug 2019, Friday 10:00 – 10:50, Wicklow Room-3 (CCD)
Alasdair Stuart (M), Jonathan Strahan, Sheila Williams, Neil Clarke

What makes a good short story? Can we find any similarities in the themes of recent short stories? Join our panel of editors for a rundown of the short fiction published in 2018, including the Hugo Award finalists for Best Short Story and the James White Award.

Bridging the language barrier: translated SFF
16 Aug 2019, Friday 12:00 – 12:50, Wicklow Hall-1 (CCD)
Cheryl Morgan (M), Julie Novakova, Neil Clarke, Francesco Verso, Emily Xueni Jin

How has the landscape of translated SFF changed in the last decade or so, both into English and from English into other languages? We’ve seen translated pieces triumph in the genre’s prime awards and gain dedicated magazines, the attention of more readers, and many specialised anthologies. The panel will discuss trends in translated genre fiction as well as possible future directions.

Pitch perfect
16 Aug 2019, Friday 14:00 – 14:50, Wicklow Room-3 (CCD)
Julie Crisp, Bella Pagan, Anne Perry, Navah Wolfe, Neil Clarke

Pitching a story can be intimidating, especially if you’re new to the field or are changing agents/editors. This is your chance to find out what agents, editors, and publishers want from their current writers, from writers fresh to the market, and from writers transitioning to someone new. Hear from the pros about what – and what not – to do when preparing the perfect pitch. (If there even is such a thing…)
