Often the best conversations at a convention are the ones that carry over after a panel. Here we have provided a space for authors, editors, agents, and our partners to share their expertise in intimate meetings. These can either be a one-on-one about an area of expertise such as hypnotism, sailing, or contract law. Or it could be an offer to talk shop such as brainstorming sticky plot points, world-building dilemmas, or how to set up book tours.

  • Writing and Submitting Short Fiction x2
  • How to Get and/or Switch Agents
  • Writing Cross-Genre
  • Sailing, Ocean Voyages, and Marine Weather
