breaking bad

Eastercon

This time next week I will be at Eastercon. I am coming on the Friday and staying until Sunday. I have never been before and I am a bit nervous. I have four activities to take part in.

I'm doing a workshop on translating poetry, using a couple of Chinese poems as examples. I'm doing a performance workshop, and I'm a judge for the Saturday evening masquerade. And then on Sunday I am on a panel talking about the practice of reviewing. I have been feeling extra nervous about these, because I feel I am not expert or informed enough. However, this is my commitment, that I will do my best to make these enjoyable and worthwhile for anyone who is there.

Reading through the programme highlights I see there is a poetry reading on Sunday night, so I might see if I can extend my booking and stay for that.
