Oh my, yes! *waves* *glomps* Welcome to Creation Station!
We will love you! And hopefully vice versa, my own personal notorious love for exclamation points notwithstanding, lol!
Seriously. Come to the Council and Directors Rooms on the 3rd floor of the Hilton Hotel side of the con
. We'll be open from, oh, 8 or 9 ish in the morning to, oh, 4 am ish in the evening, so you can't miss us!
I'd recommend our workshops, "Epic to Novel"
and "Putting it in Print",
which might help you professionalize your work. You can come when we're listed as having "Open Beta Time,"
to network with other authors and beta readers (basically folks who provide enhanced, tailored proofreading and/or editing), and even illustrators.And above all, make sure you're there for our most hallmark events, "Fanfiction Bedtime Stories" and "Fanfic Theatre". Even though they have "Fanfic" in their titles, these events have always welcomed reading and cosplay of original works, as well as of fanfics. You may read or cosplay your own original works, or have others do so for you. You may even read or perform others' original works, provided you have their permission to do so!
If the work would be rated "MA" (mature), save it for our 18+ event, Adult Fanfic Bedtime Stories!And yes, there is a specific prize for Best Original Fiction at Bedtime Stories!
