Live Action Slush

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In Live Action Slush, attendees bring the first page of their works-in-progress, and turn them in anonymously to the panel. The reader reads each submission aloud, and the panelists listen, raising their hands when they hear something that would have made them turn down the submission for publication. When all three hands are raised, the panelists discuss what the writer needs to do to make the manuscript better.

I'm a writer of fantasy, scifi, and horror (in that order). I'm an editor of the same, plus a former-editor of erotica. I'm an English professor--a medievalist, though I teach much more than just medieval lit. I'm a hockey fan. I'm a cat owner. For a sample of my work, check out The Big Bad and The Big Bad II, co-edited by me and John Hartness.
