C. S. E. Cooney and Carlos Hernandez WorldCon Schedule

CARLOS HERNANDEZ

Inclusive Game Design: Panel

17 Aug 2019, Saturday 13:00 – 13:50, Wicklow Room-1 (CCD)

Narrative, mechanics, and visuals are the core of every game. How can we use these building blocks to create a more inclusive gaming experience for everyone?

The Role of Fantastical Creatures: Panel

17 Aug 2019, Saturday 15:30 – 16:20, Odeon 3 (Point Square Dublin)

Whether they are protectors or dangerous beasts to be feared, children’s literature is filled with creatures of all kinds: big creatures, small creatures, thin creatures, tall creatures. From Pantalaimon to the Grinch, the Dementors, Winnie-the-Pooh, and more, we will take a special look at the fantastical literary creatures of children’s fiction.

Narrative and Storytelling for Games: Panel

17 Aug 2019, Saturday 19:00 – 19:50, Liffey Hall-2 (CCD)

The manner in which games create narratives has led to, arguably, some of the most compelling storytelling presented in any form. How does this form of narrative differ from more established forms in literature? What unique opportunities and constraints does this medium present to writers and narrative designers, as well as players?

C. S. E. COONEY

Concert: Brimstone Rhime ( C. S. E. Cooney)

16 Aug 2019, Friday 13:00 – 13:20, WH2 – Performance space (Point Square Dublin)

Brimstone Rhine is the musical alter-ego of fantasy writer C. S. E. Cooney. She writes songs of myths and monsters, star-journeys, weird birds, and women who eat people.

Group Reading: Speculative Performance Poetry

17 Aug 2019, Saturday 16:00 – 16:50, Liffey Room-3 (Readings) (CCD)

Speculative poetry encompasses themes from science fiction, fantasy, and horror as well as all of the subgenres in between. Dublin 2019 presents a special showcase of poets who have come together to perform a selection of speculative poetry and to share the magic of this exciting medium. This reading will feature new and classic works from speculative poetry’s mainstays, rising starts, and trend-setters.

  1. Looking forward to your concert! ❤ Have put it on my calendar–so far it is the -only- programming I have on my schedule for WorldCon. Lol! I need to look at a schedule. Thank you so much for posting!

    • OH MY GOODNESS! You’ll be there??? Do YOU have a concert??? I’m just going to do some Distant Star ballads a cappella; it’s the next thing I’ll crowdfund for. VERY EXCITING!

      • Oooh! The ballads sound cool! Are there song sheets?

        I don’t have a concert. They didn’t get back to me when I filled out the form. (And I think I was late, so mea culpa.) And I should have followed up on it but didn’t. It will be a more relaxing WorldCon for me than usual, and that will be perfectly ok! 😀
