It’s that time of year again–time for ghosts and goblins and Chessiecon 2016! We’re so thrilled to announce that Harrison has been invited back as a panelist and workshop leader.
Chessiecon is hosted by the Thanksgiving Science Fiction Society, a non-profit organization for people who are interested in science fiction, speculative fiction, fantasy, and related genres in all forms.
On Friday, 25th of November at 3pm, Harrison joins fellow authors Carl Cipra and Pam Smith on a panel entitled Autism, Asperger’s, and Fandom.
At 5:30pm the same day, he will be joined by fellow authors Carl Cipra, Jessica Moran, Meg Nicholas and Pam Smith for How to Handle Domestic Abuse in Fiction.
At 10:30pm, Carl Cipra, Mary Fan, Meg Nicholas and Don Sakers will join Harrison for LGBTQ Content: Plot or Set Dressing?
On Saturday, 26th of November at 1:45pm, Harrison will be participating on Turkey Awards Panel with Lee Budar-Danoff, Steve Kozeniewski, Don Sakers and Elizabeth Schechter. (Don’t miss this one–it’s a highlight of the weekend and one of Harrison’s favorite events!)
At 5:30pm, Harrison will do a workshop on Building a World: The Genre Fiction Workshop. (If you’ve been wondering what it’s like to work with a pro editor, or you’re just looking for a little help with your draft, this is an excellent opportunity!)
There will be readings, games, concerts, book signing and a lot more. To see the full schedule, check it out here.
