Let me tell you about one of my favorite annual events.
No. Not my birthday, though that draws near and fills me with ever-burgeoning glee.
I love birthdays.
But I’m talking about CONTEXT, a really fantastic conference of genre writers in Columbus, Ohio, where writers share their experience and knowledge freely. That is, I don’t have to tell you, an amazing opportunity whether you’re a reader, just starting out as a writer, or very experienced and looking to share and commune with the great hive-mind of genre writers. That doesn’t actually exist.
For some reason they’re having trouble filling the workshops. Workshops are amazing little mini-courses and allow you to make a tiny injection of awesome directly into your writing-brain. They have been enormously helpful to me in the past and I plan to go to as many as possible.
I am also teaching one on how to make and write comics. You should come! I’ll teach you things.
There are also open readings, contests, panels, and a game room. Seriously it’s a really good time and you should come.
