WORKSHOP: Science Fiction in Thrillers by Heidi Ruby Miller at Pennwriters 2015

I'm happy to be presenting part of my Science Fiction in Thrillers class from Seton Hill's MFA in Writing Popular Fiction program for the 2015 Pennwriters Conference, Building Bridges.

Here is the description:
Where would you shelve a book about scientists cloning dinosaurs for a theme park or a man turning into a chimera or how about the unleashing of a zombie plague? I asked authors and editors for insights into how the industry categorizes thrillers with expansive science fictional elements. If you write these types of stories, where do you think you fit in?

The Pennwriters Conference is in Pittsburgh this year on the weekend of May 15 - 17 at the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott. Keynote speaker is Ridley Pearson. For a full list of workshops, including other Seton Hill Writers like Jason Jack Miller, Timons Esaias, Lawrence C. Connolly, and Rebecca Drake, peruse the website.


  1. Missing out on crossing paths by a month as I'm in Pittsburgh for a vacation from 13th - 20th April with a book signing at DeafNation Expo on Saturday 18th April. The weekend of Pennwriters Conference, I'll be doing a book signing at Deaffest (Deaf Arts and Movie Festival) here in the UK. All best wishes for your talk and its a worthy subject as I did it with my 2nd book!

  2. Mark, here's my email in case you'd like to touch base when in Pittsburgh:

    If you've not been before, you'll have a wonderful treat--the city really is amazing. If you have been here before, then you know exactly what I mean.
