LTUE 2014: A Cornucopia of Writing Goodness

by Deren Hansen

Life, the Universe, and Everything 32, which runs from February 13-15, 2014 at the Provo Marriot, is a remarkable (and amazingly affordable) gathering of people fascinated by writing and speculative fiction.

I mentioned the guest list in a previous note, but for those of you still on the fence about the conference, the full schedule is now available. I'm willing to wager that you can find a dozen sessions to help your writing.

If you're a real glutton for punishment, in addition to participating on several panel, I'm giving two presentations:

  • The Hero's Journey and the Virgin's Promise: Patterns and Archetypes for Better Characters, on Thursday, February 13, 2014 at 11am.
  • Verisimilitude: How Illusions, Confidence Games, and Skillful Lying Can Improve Your Fiction, on Saturday, February 15, 2014 at 5:00pm 

You can register for the full conference or for individual days, so if you're chained to your desk at work until Friday evening there's still plenty to see and do at LTUE on Saturday.

If you're able to attend and you see a tall fellow in a brown sports coat, come say hello. I'd love to visit with you.
