I'll be doing a few events in 2012. Here's a list of the ones I know for sure now.
In March I'll be at International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts in Orlando from the 21st to the 25th. This year I'm pretty sure I'll be doing a reading and participating on a panel. I hadn't been to this for about ten years and then went last year -- it was a blast. This year's guests of honor are Kelly Link and China Mieville. The hotel is pretty cool, the outside part especially -- pools and a gazebo and an alligator in the pond behind the place. http://iafa.highpoint.edu/
In June, I'll be teaching the first week of Clarion at UC San Diego. My fellow instructors are Marjorie Liu, Ted Chiang, Walter Jon Williams, Holly Black, Cassandra Clare. Clarion is a six week, intensive writing workshop. If you're interested in submitting an application and writing sample the time is now. The reading period ends on March 1st. Here's a link that explains all. http://literature.ucsd.edu/affiliated-programs/clarion/index.html
In August, I'll be reading at the KGB along with Tenea Johnson. It's the third Wednesday of the month. Here's the link to the KGB site. http://www.kgbbar.com/ Here are two of Tenea's books --
