The final times for my Geek.Kon 2017 panels are in!
Friday, August 25, 9:00 PM (Mendota Room) – History of the End of the World: Trends and Evolution of Apocalyptic and Post-Apocalyptic Stories. Here I will be talking about trends and some of their causes; commercial, social, and scientific. This is a great opportunity to learn more about this year’s convention theme and share knowledge and ideas.
Saturday, August 26, 10:00 AM (Wisconsin Room) – Fanfiction Contest. We’ll be announcing and reading from the winners of this year’s Fanfiction Contest. We’re still accepting entries until August 7th from Geek.Kon attendees only. Get yours in now; the judges and I would like to experience as large a variety of stories as we can!
Saturday, August 26, 11:00 AM (Wisconsin Room) – Fanfiction Forum. This is for anyone who likes to come in and discuss fanfiction, ask questions, and generally come together as a community. Participation in the Contest is not required. For that matter, neither is actually having an experience with fanfiction.
Saturday night at midnight/12:00 AM on Sunday, August 27 (Salon H) – An Unearthly Podcast Live – Doctor Who 13: Expectations, Hopes, and Concerns. I, along with Mad Matt, Ran-San, RomeoMoon, Tim the Enchanter, will be researching Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor and giving our perspectives on a variety of issues related to her casting. Everybody at the Kon is welcome to join us and give their own perspectives – as long as that perspective is respectful and reasonable.
