NorWesCon is in exactly one week from today! I’m so excited and honored to be a guest this year. If you’re a YA fan or writer or just want to chat about books, please stalk me and say hello! I’m pretty friendly, promise. I haven’t figured out what panels I will be attending as an audience member for the most part, but here are the panels I’m on and you can definitely find me:
The Americanization of International Horror
Thursday, 5:00pm-6:00pm Cascade 6
Jennifer Brozek (M), Tori Centanni, Amber Clark, Shannon from Seattle Geekly
Zombie Apocalypse Survival for Teens
Friday, 8:00pm-9:00pm Olympic 1

(I am moderating this one but I have lots of THOUGHTS.)
What’s Unique about Writing for Young Adults?
Saturday, 10:00am-11:00am Cascade 6

Dr. Kindle-love or How I Learned to Relax and Love Ebooks…

So that’s where I DEFINITELY BE. Panels I’m likely to attend include: Feminism in Fandom, Diversity in Fiction, First Page Idol*, and Subplots. I might even attempt to do some gaming!
*First Page Idol is a thing where you, a writer of any sort, can send in your first page to firstname.lastname@example.org, and it will be read aloud and critiqued anonymously. It’s very fun. You should totally send in your first page. Highly recommend attending even if you don’t send something in, as it gives you a good feel for what makes a first page work or fail.
Also I will be on Twitter and instagram the whole con: @toricentanni.
See you there!
