Exploring Real World Conflicts in Otherworldly Settings: The Intersection of Storytelling and Morality in Science Fiction
11/3/18 12:15pm – 1pm Fan Panel Room B
Writers don’t work in a vacuum. Fiction, especially science fiction, offers an opportunity to explore real world conflicts and moral dilemmas from the safety and distance of another time or place. Are writers obligated to address the pressing issues of our time through our work? How does the news cycle impact our storytelling? What interesting questions are science fiction writers exploring today, either in writing or on the screen? Join us for this thought provoking and timely conversation.
Moderated by Tabitha Lord with panelists R. K. Bentley, Christopher Paniccia, D. R. Perry and J. Michael Squatrito, Jr.
