Excited? How can you not be!!! The Panel line-up is absolutely stellar this year!! We will be releasing the location and times as soon as they are confirmed so please check back.
But for now the Panels are...........
"What editors do, what they're looking for, and how to make their lives so much easier."
Alternative Realities will be hosting an informal panel discussing what editors do, what they're looking for and how to make their lives so much easier. In other words, how to improve your chances of not being rejected even before they've even started reading your submission and how to rise to the top once they do.
"Fear, Uncertainty and DRM"
In 2012, sales of eBooks overtook sales of physical books, but are consumers getting what they bargained for? Whether you are a publisher, writer, or reader, the new rules that govern who really owns and controls the digital content that you pay for affect us all. Join novelist, technologist, comics writer and nerd Chris Lynch for a whistle-stop tour through the dark side of "Digital Rights Management" (DRM) and find out just how much power Apple, Google, Amazon, and Microsoft have over our books, music, games and more in the digital millennium
Open to adults with little or no experience of writing, as well as those people who have been writing for sometime. Somerset poet Paul Tobin will be running a 90 minute poetry workshop. Paul is an experienced facilitator, who has run many workshops across the south west and at festivals for the past six years. Paul facilitates Taunton's popular poetry group Juncture 25, where he runs a poetry workshop once a month. Why not come along and let the muse speak to you.
"The Changing Face of Horror"
Horror, as a genre, is constantly evolving. Found-footage and torture-porn films are becoming increasingly popular and in recent years there has been a resurgence in zombie and vampire fiction. This informal panel will look at the ever-changing face of horror. Are we becoming more difficult to scare? Whatever happened to the humble ghost story? When will the zombie trend end? What's next for horror? Featuring Adam Millard, Simon Marshall Jones, A.S. Chambers and Scot Stanford.
