Transform YouGenCon’s coming up (August 15th-18th) and it’s easy to dismiss it as just a “gamer’s convention,” but its Writer’s Symposium has about 110 hours worth of panels, readings, and workshops.  No matter your level of writer, they have topics for beginning writers through areas of professional interest.  Plus, many of the 30+ writers and editors can be found either in Author Alley or, well, “what do you call a gathering of writers?  A bar.”

Here’s where I’ll be when not at the Blackwyrm Books table, where copies of my novella, I Can Transform You, will be available:
