Other Words: A Conference of Literary Magazines and Independent Publishers, will take place at Florida State University January 13th and 14th. I'll be on a panel on Saturday at 10:15 am:

Writing and Publishing Fantasy.
Richard Mathews (M) Jeff VanderMeer, A.H. Holt, Melanie Abrams

This will be pretty much off-the-cuff and there's no telling what I'll say, especially if I bring Evil Monkey along. I might say something like "There's no difference between writing fantasy and any other kind of fiction." We will see.

The bios of my co-panelists are as follows:

Richard Mathews is Director of the University of Tampa Press and Editor of Tampa Review. He is also the author of two collections of poetry, A Mummery and Numbery, and five books about science fiction and fantasy. He teaches at the University of Tampa.

Anne Haw Holt was born in Richmond, Virginia. She graduated from Piedmont Community College in Charlottesville in 1987 and Mary Baldwin College in Staunton in 1989. Anne completed her Masters degree in Historical Administration and Public History and is now a candidate for a doctorate in History at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida.

Melanie Abrams isn't listed in the program bio notes.
