My Philcon Schedule

I've received my Philcon schedule, and while it is light, it's actually exactly what I wanted:

Fri 11:00 PM in Plaza III (Three) (1 hour)
GRIMM AND ONCE UPON A TIME (1080)


[Panelists: Patricia M. Cryan (mod), Kathy Sands, Patricia Wake,
Alyce Wilson, Wayne Zimmerman]

There are currently two TV programs which treat fairy tale
characters and their stories very differently. Explore the
differences in the two shows and the ways in which they use fairy
tales as their basis.


Sun 12:00 PM in Executive Suite 623 (1 hour)
FANTASTIC POETRY (1129)


[Panelists: Darrell Schweitzer (mod), Catherynne M. Valente, Alyce
Wilson, Catherine Faber, Robert C Roman]

A survey of the field of fantastic poetry. Where would be a good
place to start?


I'm very excited! If anyone watches "Grimm" and/or "Once Upon a Time" and cares to share insights about them, either in the comments or through a personal message, I'd be happy to hear them. Also, if you happen to have any favorite poets who write fantastic poetry. That's the one that's going to take more research for me.

As always, if you intend to be at Philcon, please message me so that we can set up a time to meet!

I'm sorry that I'll be missing the convention. I would have loved to moderate this panel.

Thanks for the suggestion!

I used to maintain a blog on poetry and poets etc.

I may start doing it again one day.

It includes many poets, videos of poet, etc.

I'm really pressed for time so I can't go through poets etc individually right now but if you want to check it out:

http://learnaboutpoetry.blogspot.com/

It does mention poems, poets, talk about why poets write, etc

She is one of my favorites, too. I was lucky enough to see her read in Philly a couple years ago.

Oh, I love this one! Not sure it fits in the category "fantastic poetry," but I'll be sharing it with friends anyway.
