One Shots & You Had Me At…

This year we are continuing two popular additions to programming. One Shots and You Had Me At will alternate in Oxford-Wales throughout the day on Friday and Saturday. There will be a quick five-minute break between the 15-minute presentations and 5-minute readings. Please drop by and stay as long as you like!

One Shots
Fifteen minute presentations by authors and attendees with interesting information or specializations they’d like to share.

You Had Me At…
Readers! Time to meet new authors. Authors read the first page of their novel (novella, or short story), just enough to provide a respite from the busy conference and get you wanting more.
