AnomalyCon

Since it's Steampunk Week here at Beyond the Trope and time is racing toward us (I've been listening to Disney soundtracks, okay?), it's totally time to talk about AnomalyCon!

AnomalyCon is Denver's Steampunk and Alternate History convention, and we are so honored to have been invited. This year, the con is March 27-29 in the Denver Tech Center Hyatt. None of us have been to AnomalyCon before, so we're all kind of psyched to check it out!

Friday, March 27th, the three of us are teaching a Tropes 101 workshop, and if you're at the con, you should come see it. We'll be talking about what a trope is, why and how to use them in storytelling (regardless of your medium), some of our favorite tropes/stories, and how to twist and change familiar tropes to create awesome new things. It's going to be great.

We're also be interviewing/moderating for some fantastic authors, including Cory Doctorow, S.J. Chambers, and Molly Tanzer. Can you say we're thrilled?

I think this is one of my favorite things about what we're doing on this podcast--that we get to talk to such inspiring artists, both at conventions and not (though the conventions are tons of fun).

Anyway, pre-registration for AnomalyCon is closed (sorry!), but you can still grab tickets at the door on March 27th, so you should totally come check it out!


Emily loves conventions, despite her super-thick introvert shell. There's just something about getting a bunch of nerds with similar interests together that makes it a lot easier to talk to people and learn new things. She's planning on being an airship pirate for AnomalyCon.
