Vericon -- my schedule


10.00-11.00 - Poetry and Music - Jo Walton (M) Shira Lipkin, Greer Gilman, Patrick Rothfuss - What do you do with them, and how do poetry and prose differ? A Rhysling Award winner, the most poetic prose writer living, and the man who invented the Eolian and has his characters exchanging
rhymed couplets in dialog discuss. (Sever 214)

13.45-14.15 -- Signing, Harvard Bookstore.

18.15 Sassafrass Concert. Just putting this here so I don't forget.

20.00-22.00 Milk and Cookies. I will read something.


12.00-13.00 Everyone Writes funny! Jo Walton (M) M.L Brennan, Patrick Rothfuss, Greer Gilman, Saladin Ahmed - Everyone has their own method of composition, some plan it all ahead, some fly by the seats of their pants, and some people are really really weird. Let's look at the specifics of
how some of our guests do it.(Sever 113)

13.00-15.00 Charity Auction Loads of awesome stuff, and proceeds go to Heifer International. If you're in the US and can't come to the auction but want to support it, you can still donate directly. Donated funds will go to Heifer, and additionally the value of all direct donations will be turned into "Veribux," monopoly money-type coupons which the undergraduate volunteers who help run the convention can use to bid on auction items. So your donations will not only help Heifer directly but will also be a great thank-you for the hardworking volunteers who make the convention possible.

Easy 3-step Instructions for donating Veribux:

1. Create a Venmo account if you don't already have one and add a payment method. (Debit card is instant and free, Credit card instant with a small fee, bank account free but takes a couple days to clear.)

2. Look up "Vericon HRSFA" in the top search bar that prompts "search people or payments".

3. Select "Pay" and enter the amount you wish to donate along with the message "Veribux" (you can write a longer message if you like)
