Literary Festival Schedule for Tuesday April 27th

Another exciting day for the LitFest at Fantasy Faire! Today we have the first interview with our special guests, Sharon Lee and Steve Miller, creators of the Liaden Universe – and so much more! There’s our very special Chinese-themed party, held beneath the Dragon’s Tail, a variety of prompts and dashes to encourage people to get writing and a trip to the wonderful Faireland of Featherfall!

Milkwood Dash in Wandering Woods
Tuesday, 27 April⋅06:00 – 06:30

The beautiful setting in the Wandering Woods created by Kilik Lekvoda would be reason enough to join us for this event. But it’s also a chance for you to spend 15 minutes writing your own prose or poetry based on a writer’s prompt, and then share what you have created with your fellow authors.

Please note – around 6am, the Fairelands will restart. If that happens, we will go home for ten minutes and then head back!

Join us at Wandering Woods for the event.

Fantasy Faire Film Festival: Phaylen Fairchild Goes to War!

Well, to World of Warcraft, that is.

Back in the day, Phaylen created a short series of machinima about the (mis)adventures of a Second Life fashionista in World of Warcraft. We’re delighted to be able to show these films, introduced by Phaylen herself.

The annual LitFest party is always joyous! Following on from last year’s 1,001 Nights Party, this year we will be celebrating Journey to the West and our beautiful Chinese-themed Faireland with a celebration of Chinese myths and legends as our theme.

Special Guests: Interview with Sharon Lee and Steve Miller
3:00pm – 4:00pm
This year, we are delighted to welcome to the Literary Festival two popular and highly-regarded writers, who are also long-term residents of Second Life!

Sharon Lee and Steve Miller are perhaps best known for their Liaden Universe® works, and they are recognised as pioneers in the sub-genre of science fiction romance – stories that contain all the action, adventure and sense of wonder of traditional space opera, with the addition of romantic relationships.

They will talk to Saffia Widdershins about their lives, their work and the challenging of worldbuilding in a universe that stretches for millennium.

We may also talk about cats.

There will be gifts for attendees.
