One week from today I’ll be driving the long drive to Indianapolis for Gen Con. “Drive?” you say? Why yes, I’m from the midwest. A nine hour drive is nothing to my people. And once I’m there, I’ll be taking part in the Gen Con Writers’ Symposium, and I’m excited to be on a number of fantastic panels.
This is a first for me. Back when I was a young and foolish writer, a spontaneous visit to the Writers’ Symposium showed me that writing could be more than just a random thing I toil away at for my unappreciative D&D group. It showed me that there were paths to improve my writing and get those words in front of people out there in the real world. I owe a lot to the Gen Con Writers’ Symposium, and I am absolutely thrilled to be part of it this year.
Here’s my schedule for the con:
- The Story’s in the Cards: Worldbuilding Outside of Prose – Thursday 12:00 PM
- Meet the Pros of Writers’ Symposium – Thursday 6:00 PM
- Playing TTRPGs with Writers Feeds Your Craft! – Friday 11:00 AM
- The Ethics of AI Visual Art – Friday 4:00 PM
- Humor in Speculative Fiction – Saturday 11:00 AM
- Signing with Anthony W. Eichenlaub – Saturday 2:00 PM
- Writing Tools – Sunday 9:00 AM
- The Ethics of AI-Written Prose – Sunday 11:00 AM
It’s a great schedule, and I’m looking forward to it. Some panels are already sold out or very close, which totally blows my mind.
