Writers’ Room

It’s a weekend long writing workshop inside of the convention! Drop in to your choice of eighteen different workshops and sessions.

The Writers’ Room workshop focuses on building story elements such as character, world building, and story structures for the novice writer while providing a good refresher for the more experienced storyteller. We’ll also deep dive into more focused topics and explore the business of writing.
