Superheroes Around the World
Every culture has its superheroes, but their form function can vary dramatically under the spandex. Come hear our panel discuss superheroes as moral paragons, propaganda, agents of revisionist history... that time Spiderman used a giant robot to fight aliens.

My Skin Isn't Caramel, My Eyes Aren't Chocolate: Colorism Among Us
Many mixed-race people have complicated feelings over passing as a member of the racial majority. In some colonized countries, skin whitening products are worth billions. Often, in addition to racism, many of us have been treated differently by our own people based on how we look. How, then, can we as writers avoid colorism in our own writing? Hint: don't use food descriptions.

Running a Genre Magazine
To many writers, the inner workings of magazines are utterly opaque. Our panel of editors can give you insight into what things look like on their side of the desk: financial legal considerations, unexpected challenges, how to best promote authors' work. This panel is great for any author who wants to see how a magazine is made, especially if they're considering starting a magazine of their own!

On the Shoulders of Giants: Literary Parents
Many will cite Tolkien or other white male authors from the 1950s as influences. But these are literary parents, too: the ghost stories of your elementary school, the Halloween specials of a nightly news show, the tales your mother/grandmother/nanny told you before bed (often to scare you into being good). This panel will discuss their own literary parents from both within beyond the margins, as well as what they think count don't when it comes to influences in their work.

The Many Flavors of Worldbuilding: Food in SFF
Food can tell you a lot about the culture behind it: how when it was made, how it's ritualized, how ingredients can dictate one's place in society. It can tell you a lot about the foreign culture imbibing it, too—specifically, their attitudes toward anything foreign. Join our panel of authors as they discuss how they build worlds (or imply them) using food in their fiction.
