The GenCon Writer’s Symposium is one of the best kept secrets in writing. I’d be hard pressed to name a conference with more programming (145 writing events). And the guest list (over 70 professional authors, editors, and publishers) is outstanding:
There’s tremendous opportunity to learn from (and mingle with) the pros at this con. I highly recommend checking out the schedule and signing up for panels and workshops. GenCon was the first professional conference I attended as a beginning writer, and I can’t say enough good things about it.
According to our master of ceremonies, writer and game designer Marc Tassin, over 3,000* people signed up for the symposium in the first two hours.
So don’t wait until the last minute, register today!
*I probably need to revise that first sentence.
