Writing About Humanity Amidst the Extraordinary

In the world of science fiction and fantasy, it's often easy to get lost in the technology and magic… and sacrifice the human condition in the process. Our panel of esteemed writers will discuss some of the techniques they've used to keep their stories firmly grounded in their humanity: rich character development, interpersonal conflict and drama, and the backgrounds of politics, social upheaval and the influence of alien worlds and civilizations; and share their thoughts on what has worked in the worlds of fiction... and what hasn't.
