So, not only do we get to go to Denver Comic Con this year, and not only are we setting up a Patreon, I also have some pretty awesome personal news. Well, personal for my career.
I'm teaching TWO workshops at RMFW's Colorado Gold conference! I pitched three workshops, and they picked two of them. This is a big deal for me because I've only taught one workshop on my own before. It was at another local con, and a LOT of people showed up. A lot more than I expected, too.
So what am I teaching? I'll be revisiting Podcasting your Platform. I know I've taught this once before, but I can't remember if I taught it a second time. This one will be more focused on writers than the last time (which was aimed at all artists). And I'll also be teaching a Building Your Brand workshop, focusing on using new media to build a brand and a platform all at once.
It'll be exciting to go to a writing conference again. It'll be two years since I went to the last conference, since Beyond the Trope spent all last year at fan conventions rather than craft conferences. It meant I didn't have time or the finances to go to a writing conference. We met a few of our friends at the bar after the Saturday keynote, but I missed getting to spend a whole weekend with writing friends, talking about craft, listening to awesome speakers, and meeting new people.
