Come see we at WisCon! (My schedule)

And now, on the heels of the Nebulas, comes my first ever visit to WisCon, the "world's leading feminist science fiction convention." I'm totally psyched for this!

Here's my panel and reading schedule. I will be reading "Mind Locker" on Monday at 10am at Michaelangelo's:


Call Out Culture in Social Justice Movements
Type Program
Track(s) Feminism and Other Social Change Movements (Power, Privilege, and Oppression)
Description The internet has given social justice activists a new way to organize and consciousness-raise. But it's also give us a way to pile on vitriol when we're unhappy. Has outrage fatigue subverted our ability to hold space for people's learning curves? Do we punch across instead of up? What happens when apologies go unheeded and public humiliation takes the place of well-reasoned discourse? And how can we support ourselves and our communities when one of us screws up?
Location Capitol A
Schedule Sat, 10:00–11:15 am
Panelists M: Debbie Notkin. Tanya D., ANONYMOUS, ANONYMOUS, Juliette Wade     


N.K. Jemisin's Fiction
Type Program

Description N.K. Jemisin's fiction consistently delves deeply into race, class, gender, oppression, colonization, and other topics near and dear to WisCon's heart. What does she do well? What does she do badly? Does her fiction (and its popularity) move the genre needle by its example, or do other authors even notice?
Location Capitol B
Schedule Sun, 10:00–11:15 am
Panelists M: David Emerson. Beth A-B, ANONYMOUS, Juliette Wade


Hard Chargers
Type Reading

Description Hard Chargers: Women Writing Hard Science Fiction. We don’t shrink-and-pink our science fiction. More particle physics, less boyfriend. For all the people who say that women can’t write hard science fiction or they’re not interested in it, we dare you to come hear us.
Location Michelangelos
Schedule Mon, 10:00–11:15 am
Panelists Kat Beyer, Kimberley Long-Ewing, Marguerite Reed, Juliette Wade


  1. I'll be at WisCon as well. Depending on how well checkout goes Monday morning, I may be able to come to the reading.
