The Future of Speculative Fiction Magazines, Part 2: Online Magazines /Conclusions.
K. Tempest Bradford, Neil Clarke, Robert Killheffer, Mary Robinette Kowal (L), Matthew Kressel, Sean Wallace
Are print magazines doomed? (Heck, if _newspapers_ can’t make it …) Or will they survive in their tiny niches? Are there ways to make them more viable? Is that even worth the bother? After all, online magazines are now easy and relatively inexpensive to start-are they the answer? Part two of our discussion concentrates on online magazines and then moves onto the Big Picture.
Sunday 1:00 PM, RI: Workshop (60 min.)
How to Give an Effective Reading

You may be a good writer, but reading aloud is a separate skill. Learn to make your words sound as great out loud as they do on the page. Using both demonstration and audience participation, we will explore voicing, narration and pacing.
