Can Con 2014

So I finally picked up a weekend membership to attend Can-Con, the Conference on Canadian Content in Speculative Arts & Literature.  I’ve been meaning to for a while, but wanted to wait and see what some of the programming looked like before I committed.  The full schedule isn’t available yet, but what is up on the site looks fantastic.  Last year did too (more on that later), so I should just continually buy a pass every year and stop doubting the awesomeness.

There’s a partial list of programming up, and based on that, this is what I’m looking forward to the most so far:

  • First and foremost, my friend and fellow author S.M. Carrere is doing a reading from her upcoming release The Winter Wolf (look for it October 31st 2014).  The Winter Wolf is a follow up to The Summer Bird.
  • The Economics of Self-Publishing
  • Face Palms of World Building
  • Getting Noticed in the Slush Piles
  • Reading Fantasy
  • Readers Supporting Magazines
  • Science: Can We Time Travel?
  • Social Media (101 Pts 1&2)
  • Writer Development Workshops – Are They Worth it?
  • The Whedonverse

All in all it looks great.  I bought a pass last year and didn’t go at all.  Too depressed and too much anxiety.  Lets hope I get myself there this year.
