Werepigs, Beatniks, & Panels @ Context 27

September 25th, 2014

context 27The Context SF Convention in Worthington, Ohio, continues to impress me as one of the best regional cons in the country. With a strong writing track and lively panel discussions.

I go whenever I can, and this weekend I’ll be on hand for a number of events.

First up will be the panel “What is an MFA and (Why) Do I Want One?” (Friday @ 7:00 pm). Here I’ll be joining Lucy Snyder and Tim Waggoner — fellow residency faculty from Seton Hill University’s MFA program in Writing Popular Fiction. It should be a lively discussion.

Saturday will be a busy day, staring with “Wellness For Authors and Readers” at 10:00 am and continuing until a grand finale at 7:00 pm, where I’m scheduled to give a reading at The Beatnik Cafe before rushing off at 7:30 to join Greg Hall on a special podcast of The Funkey Werepig Show.
