Reminder: On Science Fiction and Writing Wynde

As I announced last month, tonight is my talk the Belvedere-Tiburon Library in northern California. I’m looking forward to seeing family and old friends, and meeting some new ones.

On Science Fiction and Writing Wynde
Thursday, May 3, 7:30pm in the Founders Room
Young people have many options in the growing field of science fiction and fantasy storytelling beyond being an author. With the success of stories like The Hunger Games and Harry Potter, more and more young women are seeking opportunities to express their love of genre storytelling. Enthusiastic fans are making their marks – and even a living – as bloggers, reporters, editors, writers of non-fiction supplemental material, marketing professionals, convention panelists, game designers, and artists. Tricia will talk about the many options available to participate either as a fan or in pursuit of more professional opportunities, including where to start, how to make an impression, and what school coursework will give the aspiring fan a head start. Participants will have the opportunity to win Star Wars books donated by Random House and other fun items.
