Sunday, Jul 03 10:00 AM to Sunday, Jul 03 11:30 AM in room: Valley
Normally any "writers' workshop" is a private behind closed doors affair, inviting rumors on ancient and tribal rites involving Styrofoam, marshmallows and duct tape. This panel is designed to bring to the public what the process looks and sounds like. Using submissions from the audience members, our panelists will quickly mark up and present a critique. All of our Iron Editors have been published themselves, and have a very good idea of what a story needs to get published. To participate bring up to 2 double spaced pages of creative writing either to the panel or drop it off in the box at the Info Desk. You must be present to have your submission critiqued! The more - the merrier!! Also, non-submitting audience members are more than welcome.

To Market: How to Sell Short Stories
Monday, Jul 04 10:00 AM to Monday, Jul 04 11:30 AM in room: Valley
Submitting a story to a journal, anthology or magazine might seem as simple as attaching a Word document to an email and firing it off, but is it? How do you know the appropriate market for your fiction? How much is enough money to be paid for your work? How should you approach an editor? What are the dos and don'ts of getting published in the speculative short fiction marketplace?

From Kodachrome to Where?
Monday, Jul 04 1:00 PM to Monday, Jul 04 2:30 PM in room: Regency Ballroom 1
Kodachrome ended a 75-year run in December 2010, causing a lot of grief for its fans. Over the past decade, numerous manufacturers have dropped film cameras from their product lines. Resolution for digital images are approaching the resolution of film. Given all this, introductory photography classes are still taught with black & white film. Where are things heading?
