The Fine Art of Literary Theft

I had an absolute blast this past weekend at the Emerald City Writers’ Conference — the friendliest conference you’ll ever attend! For some reason, they let me have access to a microphone and a slide projector, so I was able to subject a room-semi-full of people to a presentation on genre tropes, mash-ups, and ethical artistic stealing. The slides are very pretty (thanks, Slidevana!), and some bits of it may in fact be intelligent as well! So I thought I might post it on Slideshare and on this here blog, for those who couldn’t attend the conference in person. There’s audio somewhere, and when that is available I’ll see about posting that as well (or at least letting you know how to find it elsewhere).

{Edited to add this one single slide, as a reference link and teaser.}
