I am continually humbled by how people have really rallied under this banner. This first year is going to get us off to a fabulous start, and I’m not only looking forward to what we’ll do thins time around, but how the vision will grow in the future.
See you soon!
Rebecca, looks like a great con. Would love to talk to you about the possibility of teaching a session related to writing comics. I’ve been writing comics professionally for some years, breaking in first with Marvel (did stories for New Avengers and Wolverine) and now doing independent work (most recently stold a faith-based graphic novel titled ClosetWorld to Arcana Comics). It would be one more unique perspective into another form of speculative fiction, in this case through comics. Look forward to chatting with you more.
