Nine Worlds Geekfest: 7-9 August 2015, London

If you have any programme suggestions for the fanfic stream at the convention, please leave them in comments below. Anon posting is enabled; make sure you're logged out if you want to be anonymous. Either fully-formed programme items or vague ideas are welcome. You can also email fanfic@nineworlds.co.uk.

If you'd like to be on fanfic programme, please leave a comment or email fanfic@nineworlds.co.uk, and let us know your areas of interest. You'll need to identify yourself for this, but you don't need a dreamwidth or LJ account. Just tell us your badge name and email address.

We can't promise to use every idea or find a spot for everyone, but we'll do our absolute best.

If you don't want to be on programme but would still like to be involved, could you commit to looking after the track for a session or two? We'd really appreciate this. All you need to do is stay in the room, be approachable, and let us know of any issues (contact methods provided).

We'll be at Dysprosium (Eastercon) 3-6 April at the Park Inn Heathrow. If you'd like to discuss Nine Worlds Fanfic programme, come and find us in the bar, or let us know here if you'd like to arrange to meet at Eastercon.

Please send us any programme ideas before 15 April 2015, after which we'll be squeezing in our brainstorming session before Age of Ultron is released. If you'd like to be a programme participant you can let us know any time, but the earlier you tell us the more likely it is we'll be able to find you a spot.

If you have suggestions for other tracks, but you're not sure where they belong, you can leave those here too and we'll pass them on. Tracks are not yet finalised so it may take a while to sort out, but we will make sure someone considers every idea.

Feedback on last year is still welcome, and you can post here anonymously.

Thank you!

[personal profile] piratemoggy kindly moderated a roundtable on sexuality and fanfic last year. Here's the description we used:

The panel discuss the depiction of sexuality in fanfic. Many fanwriters are writing about sex acts that are outside their experience: others may be projecting their own experiences and fantasies onto canon characters. Why do some writers depict a particular character as generally straight, but 'gay for [insert name here]'? How accurate / credible are fanfic depictions of sex and sexuality? Why does it matter if we get things wrong?

That's where we started. Where we ended up was a lot more complex. Feedback has suggested that we ought to follow up some of the issues raised in more detail.

If you were at the panel, what would you like us to focus on this year? We'd also like to hear from anyone who wasn't there, if they have suggestions on this topic.

Anonymous posting is enabled and all suggestions are welcome.

Thank you!
