I've received my official Philcon schedule and am on two panels this year and am officially the moderator of one of them (huzzah!). Check it out:
Sat 6:00 PM in Crystal Ballroom Two (1 hour)
BECOMING A FULL TIME WRITER (1496)
[Panelists: Alyce Wilson (mod), Alex Shvartsman, David Sklar, D.L. Carter, Thomas Willeford]
How do you become a full time writer? Is that a good idea for you?
Sun 10:00 AM in Plaza III (Three) (1 hour)
USING SOCIAL MEDIA TO PROMOTE YOUR CAREER (1543)
[Panelists: KT Pinto (mod), Christine Norris, Alyce Wilson, D.H. Aire]
Whenever a writer is on Facebook, he or she is not working on their writing. What are the potential advantages and distractions of social media?
So my questions to you: What information would you like to hear on these two panels if you were attending? And do you have any insights that might be useful (such as specific books or online resources) to share?
