This weekend, I attended Capclave, a genre readers’ and writers’ convention in Gaithersburg, MD. It was my second year at this event and I’ve already pre-registered for next year! Clearly, I enjoyed myself at the con, thanks as much to the company I kept as well as the programming of the convention.
- A Q&A session with Danielle Ackley-McPhail about publicizing you work
- A workshop for Building an Adaptive Setting by David Keener
- Panels on: Creating a Setting, Diversity, Anthologies, and dealing with Rejection Letters
- The Worldcon bid party for New Orleans in 2018
Everything was a great combination of entertaining and informative and I took rather copious notes (which I’ll be combining with those of my writing group mates and turning into a useful post another day). For now, know that I recommend Capclave highly for a small, intimate setting, which provides plenty of opportunities to interact with writers and editors.
