The Writer’s Symposium at GenCon is a hidden treasure. I stumbled into it almost by accident during my first GenCon, and I’ve not looked back. It was the best crash-course a fledgling writer could have – both for the craft of writing and for the often-neglected business side of things.
Marc Tassin has been doing a bang-up job running the Symposium for the last several years, and I’m glad to be part of it again thanks to Jaym Gates.
She invited me to take part in her workshop:
Kickstarter, Social Media, and Standing Out From the Crowd
It’s at 3pm this Saturday, featuring Jaym Gates, Melanie Meadors, Stephen Hood (of the Storium Kickstarter), and myself. My part will include not only the ethics of running a successful crowdfunding campaign, but some of the hard data I’ve collected over four successful campaigns.
Prior to that, Sarah Hans (editor of Steampunk World and Sidekicks and author published all over the place) and I will be having an informal meet-and-greet at noon on Saturday right outside the Symposium’s rooms.
We look forward to seeing you there!
