I thought I’d share a couple from each day that are jumping out at me at the moment.
Chaired by: Laure Eve.
Taran Matharu, Laura Lam, Elizabeth May, David Owen, & Samantha Shannon.
Great line up and I’ve really enjoyed Taran Matharu’s & Samantha Shannon’s series this year, looking forward to them all discussing some of my favourite genres.
We Love Buffy
Chaired by: Katherine Woodfine.
Laure Eve, Alison Goodman, Non Pratt, Stefan Mohammed, & Harriet Reuter-Hapgood.
It’s Buffy. What’s not to get excited about?!
New Voices 1
Chaired by: Katherine Webber.
Alice Broadway, Gemma Fowler, Carlie Soroslack, Vic James, Karen M. McManus, Ed McDonald, Josh Martin, & Hayley Barker.
I’m always on the look out for some new authors to get excited by, so this panel first thing on Saturday morning looks like just the thing.
Myth, Magic, & Fairy-Tale
Chaired by: Imogen Russell Williams
Joanne Harris, Julia Gray, Laura Docrill, Zoë Marriot, Deirdre Sulivan, Peadar O’Guillin join this discusion on this one, and I think it might be a nice companion chat to the SFF Now panel.
Chaired by: Lucy Saxon.
Maggie Harcourt, Chris Russell, Anna Day, Rebecca Denton. I can’t imagine that this panel, could be anything else that a whole lot of fun!
And then to close out the weekend, a couple of author panels Sarah Crossan & Brian Coaghan talk about We Come Apart with Phil Earle, and Patrick Ness talks about his latest novel, Release with Juno Dawson.
I’ll definitely be taking in a few more panels over the weekend, but these are the ones I’ve ticked off first.
If you’re off to YALC, which panels are you hoping to catch?
