Fri 3:00 - 3:50 PM, Worrying For Writers, Thunderdome Right (Big Room Right)
Panelists: Larry Bonham, Manny Frishberg, Anne Groell, Patrick Swenson
Writers are full of worry. Am I doing this right? How long is this supposed to take? Will I ever be published? Do other writers have this many problems? Am I wasting my time? Will anyone care about this character? Join us as we discuss some common fears and how to stop that voice in your head from getting in the way of your success.

Fri 5:00 - 5:50 PM, Minor Characters, Thunderdome Left (Big Room Left)
Moderator: Rhiannon Held; Panelists: Dave Bara, Manny Frishberg, Anne Groell, L.F. Patten (Laurey)
Minor characters might not be as important as your protagonists, but they're still important in their own way. Let's discuss some of the ways you can make your minor characters as fully dimensional and real as your main ones without over-sharing.

Sat 10:00 - 10:50 AM, Time Travel Today: It's Not 1985 Anymore, Great Hall (Upstairs)
Panelists: Dave Bara, Manny Frishberg, Hugh S. Gregory
Looper vs. Predestination vs. 12 Monkeys. How does Science Fiction present time travel these days? Does the Delorean still need to hit 88 mph? Do you just need a cardboard box like Calvin and Hobbes? Or do you just need a little alien blood in the face like Tom Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow?
