When Words Collide 2018: Panel and Workshop Materials Up

Hello, kittens, I’m still recovering from When Words Collide 2018, but I’ve put together the slide decks and extra notes for panel attendees, and you can have a peek at them too if you like.

The REAL Diversity Panel
When Words Collide 2018
Saturday, August 11, 2 pm (Waterfront)
featuring Tet Millare, Tiffany Sostar, Adora Nwofor, Alyssa Linn Palmer
moderated by M. Jane Colette

PANEL DESCRIPTION, pre-delivery: Writing diversely starts with living diversely and reading diversely. Join our panel of writers, activists and readers to discuss the role of readers and writers in shaping the world we want to live in through what we read and write and create in our art.

PANEL DESCRIPTION, post-delivery: We did not cover a quarter of what we had intended, and we certainly did not drill into shaping the world we want to live in through what we read, write and create. Instead, we set the groundwork for continued reflection and discussion. We hope that at least once or twice you thought, “I did not think about it like that.” We invite you to consider this panel and these resources as the beginning of more “I did not think about it like that” moments.

ORGANIZED CREATIVE:
Productivity, Organization and SANITY Secrets
for the Chaotically Inclined
by M. Jane Colette

This hands-on workshop will show you how to organize your days by realistically planning your year, and working backwards-and-forwards throughout the year to stay on track with your goals. You will also learn how to track and maximize your productivity cycles, use a process journal, value your lazy fallow periods, and use your procrastination to nurture inspiration.

As always, immense gratitude to When Words Collide for being the little reader-writer con that changed my life.

You can read about my last year’s WWC experience, and why I love that festival so much here.

I am still so high and happy. 🙂

See you next year.

xoxo

About mjanecolette

Writer. Reader. Angster. Reformed Bohemian (not). Author of the erotic romance Tell Me, the erotic tragedy (with a happy ending) Consequences (of defensive adultery), and the rom-com (she's versatile) Cherry Pie Cure, as well as the non-fiction collection of essays Rough Draft Confessions: not a guide to writing and selling erotica and romance but full of inside inside anyway. Coming in 2018: Text Me, Cupid, a steamy romance in four episodes. Current WiPs: Queer Christmas in Cowtown, Jewel of the Not-So-Spectacular Boobs, All In the Cards, and Un-Valentine. Yes, working on four projects simultaneously is a spectacularly bad idea.
