A (Haunted) House with Many Rooms—Horror Sub-Genres 

State Suite A / Moderator: Tim Waggoner; Panelists: Don D’Auria, Frazer Lee, Jennifer Loring, Donald Sidney-Fryer, Paul Tremblay

The horror genre encompasses a multitude of types: action, bizarro, body, extreme, gothic, Lovecraftian, psychological, splatterpunk, the supernatural, vampire, weird, Western, zombie, ghost stories, and many others. The panelists will discuss how sub-genres evolve and key works that have defined or inspired sub-genres. Can authors become typecast in a sub-genre? What about mash-ups? What new types of horror might emerge in the future?

PANEL – SATURDAY, MARCH 3

3:00 P.M.

Terrifying Teaching Tactics

State Suite C / Moderator: Michael Arnzen; Panelists: Heather Herrman, Frazer Lee, Thomas F. Monteleone, Sara Tantlinger

Educators who write and teach horror fiction, poetry, and film are a rare and darksome breed! Come learn their classroom strategies that engage learners with horror entertainment and help new writers enter the field we all love. The discussion will include not only books and  movies that have educational value but also actual activities that use the craft and technique of horror writing to advance learning. What should those considering a career in horror education know?

PANEL – SATURDAY, MARCH 3

5:00 P.M.

Book to Screen: How to Market Your Work for Film and Television

State Suite B / Moderator: Lynne Hansen; Panelists: J.D. Barker, Michael Gingold, Frazer Lee, Daniel Waters, Douglas E. Winter

Think your book would make a great movie or television show? So do a lot of other authors! What attracts the interest of producers and filmmakers? What makes a novel or story a good candidate for film or TV? What works against it? How do you go about getting your work into the hands of filmmakers and protect your intellectual property in the process?
