I’ll be attending StokerCon next month, taking place June 15-18 at the Sheraton Station Square in Pittsburgh. It’ll be my second time attending StokerCon, and my second time visiting Pittsburgh, and I’m looking forward to both! Below is my official schedule as it stands at the moment. I’ll try to keep this post updated with any changes or additional details as they become available. Hope to see you there!
Friday, June 16 at 1p.m. EST – Author Reading
Kenneth W. Cain, A.C. Wise, John Langan, Steven Van Patten
Friday, June 16 at 4p.m. EST – Adaptations and Retellings
Tim Waggoner, A.C. Wise, Jeff Strand, Cynthia Pelayo, James Aquilone, Jamie Flanagan
Whether working with novels, films, graphic novels, fairy tales, or otherwise, writers venturing into the world of adaptations have to find ways to make their version of the story stand out. Panelists will discuss techniques and resources for working in the public domain and adapting ideas from works that are well-known or already have established characters. This session will also be live-streamed to virtual conference participants.
