Friday 10:00 AM Writing Human Characters, Whether or Not They’re Human — Laurel Anne Hill added
Friday 11:00 AM Poetry of the Fantastic — Stephen Wilson removed

We have just been handed what we hope is the near final program schedule. Please note that all program items are subject to last minute changes due to factors beyond our (and the participants’) control. We will endeavor to keep these pages updated, and will post any changes to this blog. Also our apologies for the fairly plain formatting. We know that a number of you have been waiting patiently for this information so we got it up as quickly as we could. Something more elegant will hopefully follow later. In the meantime, here are some schedules.

There are still tickets available for the WFC Banquet on Sunday at 1 PM. Tickets are $75 each (or $750 for a table of ten). We hope to see many of you at Sunday afternoon’s banquet, which will be immediately followed by the World Fantasy Awards Ceremony.

You can check to see whether you bought a ticket on the Membership List page. If there is a * by your name, our records show that you bought at least one ticket.
