Coaching

I added a section on coaching and other writing services I do (courses / lectures). For now, there’s only a page in Swedish, but if there’s interest I’ll put an english page together as well.

At the Dublin WorldCon

Today is the official start of Dublin2019, this year’s WorldCon.

I’m thrilled to be back in Dublin, which I still think of as my second home – and also looking forward so much to meeting all the people and going to panel discussions and lectures.

I’m moderating two panels, one on Friday and one on Saturday. The Friday one is about Rob Anderson and telling a story through fencing, and the Saturday panel is about fantastic beasts in children’s literature.

My WorldCon

The programme for WorldCon 2017 in Helsinki is now official. I am delighted to be in no less than three programme items! Even more delighted by the fact that all three are on really interesting topics. I am also very humbled by the company I’m in. And a bit nervous.
