The Nebula Awards are coming to Pittsburgh next month.
The following is from SFWA’s official release for the event:
Focusing on three tracks relevant to professionals in the genre, attendees will be able to choose from career management, professional development, and expert knowledge panels and workshops throughout the weekend.
You will also be able to meet with major industry partners throughout the conference during scheduled “office hours.” You will also be able to meet with major industry partners throughout the conference during scheduled “office hours.” Often the best conversations at a convention are the ones that carry over after a panel. Here we have provided a space for authors, editors, agents, and our partners to share their expertise in intimate meetings. These can either be a one-on-one about an area of expertise such as hypnotism, sailing, or contract law. Or it could be an offer to talk shop such as brainstorming sticky plot points, world-building dilemmas, or how to set up book tours.
The four-day event is being held at the Pittsburgh Marriott, City Center.
I hope to post a full preview soon. In the meantime, more information is available at the SFWA website.
