LaShawn’s ConFusion Schedule

I’ll be at ConFusion 2020 next week in Detroit! I’m even doing things. Here’s my schedule:

Finance for Career Fiction Writers

Day: Friday Time: 12:00 p.m. Room: Manitou

The finances of freelancing come with a steep learning curve, and fiction writing is no exception. Our panel of veteran fiction freelancers talk about managing the up-and-down nature of freelance income, making long-term financial plans without a consistent paycheck, and how to put advances to work so that they support you and your career for the long term

Panelists: LaShawn M. Wanak (M), David Mack


Day: Saturday Time: Room: Leelanaw

I’ll be reading an excerpt from “Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Memphis Minnie Sing the Stumps Down Good”.

Panelists: LaShawn M. Wanak, Jordan Kurella

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Day: Saturday Time: 06:00 p.m. Room: Keweenaw

Our panel of writers discusses the structure, pacing, characters, themes, and world-building in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and how it fits in as the capstone of the Star Wars Saga.

Panelists: Annalee Flower Horne (M), LaShawn M. Wanak, Jordan Kurella

(Guess that means I need to watch the movie ha ha ha oh crud when will I find the time–)

If you see me, say hi! If I’m in the common areas, I’d love to chat. If I’m not, that means I’m introverting, at which case, I’ll see you when I’m done.
