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.

Available topics this hour are:
  • Modern & Historical Ceramics
  • Glassblowing
  • Weaving
  • Pattern-making
  • Orreries
  • Building a Fan Base and Branding in Self-Publishing
  • Writing Workshops
  • Queries
  • Scrivener, Autocrit, and Other Writing Software
  • Writing SF for TV
  • Graphic Design
  • Book Covers
  • Project Management
  • Bullet Journaling
  • Teaching Creative Writing as Supplemental Income
  • Libraries and Archives
  • Hypnosis
