Schedule Overview is Up, and a Little Master Teasing ensues...

Now that our remarkable list of presenters is available on the site, we're getting many questions about this year's content. What workshops will be on offer? Which panels will be available to choose from? Who will the keynote speakers be this year?

Fear not -- step one of the scheduling process is now complete. If you check over at the menu on the right, you'll see a new button for 'Conference Overview'. Our WebWizard has spent long hours re-working the code for this new section, and it's now up and running. The next step is to begin loading the more than 70 workshops, panels, keynotes and more that will be on offer at the conference this year.

We will also be running Master Classes prior to the conference again this year. Now, these classes are not officially a part of our conference, and to register for them costs a little extra. But many of our regular attendees every year like to kick-start their conference experience with one or two Master Classes on the Thursday before SiWC officially commences.

You can expect more Master Classes this year than ever before -- we'll have six on offer. And who will be teaching them? Take a look at this stellar collection of presenters:

Mythic Fantasy Writer Carol Berg

Writers for Young People Lee Edward Fodi & James McCann

Conference Favourite, uber-agent Donald Maass

Agent Provacateur Janet Reid

Hugo & Nebula Award-winning author Robert J. Sawyer

...and the inimitable charmer (and best-selling author) Jack Whyte.

A true embarrassment of riches, wouldn't you say?

And what will this astonishingly talented group have to offer?

I'm afraid for that you'll have to await our schedule...


...coming soon to a website near you!
