Can-Con 2019!

I had such an amazing time at Can-Con this year!

It’s the third time I’ve taken part in the CAN-CON: Conference on Canadian Content in Speculative Arts & Literature, but this was the best one yet. I was on a few panels: Snakes and Ladders of Self-Publishing, Body Positivity is Slim Pickings and I was asked to moderate and participate in Today’s Golden Age of TV.

I took part in lively conversations on all of those topics and it was wonderful. Moderating a panel was a treat with Sylvain Neuvel and C. J. Lavigne in front of a packed room. It was totally awesome to be on the other side of the table and an incredible experience.

Can-Con was different for a couple of other reasons this year. I took part in the launch of Nothing Without Us and a reading of stories from the anthology. It’s an honour to have a story in that book and I was thrilled that it was received so well.

I also had a table in the vendor’s room. I’ve never done anything like that before and it was an amazing experience. I got to talk with people who had attended the panels I was on, readers and book lovers and other writers and authors whose work I admire. How awesome is that?

The whole experience of Can-Con made me feel like I was at home. I am already looking forward to Can-Con 2020!
