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
