I’ll be at Context 23 the last weekend of August. This will be my second year at CONTEXT, though the first that I’m on panels for this convention. It’s a nice, quiet convention – a good break after the sheer size of GenCon. That and Tobias Buckell will be the GoH this year, which is an awesome thing in and of itself.
Context is a friendly convention focused on speculative fiction literature and related games, comics and films.
If you enjoy manga, anime, science fiction, fantasy, or horror, you’ll find plenty to entertain you at this convention.
Not only are there the panels, but there are a number of intensive seminars for writers. I’ll be deep in one of those on Friday, but Saturday and Sunday I should be around the con. The three panels I’ll be on (unless the programming director grabs me for another!) are:
Saturday, 2:30pm: An Eye for Detail: The Writer’s Creed
Saturday, 7pm: Writing for Different Mediums / Venues
Sunday, 10am: Genre Conventions – What’s Different or the Same?
Sunday, 11am: eBooks
(If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, I bet you’ve guessed that I’m excited about the last!)
I hope to see you all there!
