Readercon–July 14, 2012–Teaching and Doing

My second panel at Readercon 2012 (and the second one I was lucky enough to have proposed and have accepted), this was a really interesting panel on those who both write and teach, with Veronica Schanoes, Jack Haringa, Michael Cisco, John Kessel, and me. We had a great turnout, and the conversation about the connection between academic and creative worlds in speculative fiction (a topic about which I’ve been interested in a while) was lively and thought-provoking…I left with a lot of new ideas about the subject, and some possible new ways to approach both writing and teaching going forward.
