What Turns People Onto Horror (Panel)

Date and time TBD, San Jose Convention Center

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. What scares us and why are we drawn to it? Members of the Bay Area chapter of the Horror Writers Association share their first experiences with horror and discuss how their fears inspire their work.

Panelists: Loren Rhodes, L.S. Johnson, E.M. Markoff (M), Fred Wiehe, Scott Sigler


Body Language - How to Improve Your Awareness and Use It in Fiction (Panel)

August 19, 2018, Sunday 12pm-1pm, 210B San Jose Convention Center

More than half of our communication occurs through body language, much of which is instinctual rather than conscious. Because of this, non-verbal clues can be hard to recognize and therefore reproduce successfully. This panel will discuss techniques to increase your awareness of body language around you and how to incorporate this element into your fiction.

Panelists: Margaret McGaffey Fisk, Fred Wiehe, Yvette Keller, Scott Silgler


YA vs. Adult Fiction: Defining Boundaries (Panel)

August 19, 2018, Sunday 2pm-3pm, 210 A San Jose Convention Center

YA Fiction is a crucial part of the SFF world. What defines YA as separate from Adult Fiction? How do writers approach each of these categories differently in terms of voice, structure, themes, and market positioning.

Panelists: Fonda Lee, Fred Wiehe, Guadalupe Garcia McCall, Kartrina Archer
