At the 2019 KAC convention in Wichita, Close will offer a seminar on The Future of Fake News.
“Fake news is not new, folks,” he says. “It’s been around as long as politicians and the media have sparred, and as long as the public has been gullible enough to be fooled by sensational stories. We will take a brief look at its ugly past, how it affects us presently — and more importantly, where Fake News is headed. You won’t believe some of the things that are being predicted. Hint: Technology will not be our friend when it comes to discerning the difference between truth and alternative realities. Will include handouts, and possibly a quick game, to help you figure out what’s real. How is this going to affect your writing? We will kick that around, too.”
