There’s still time to secure your hotel room for the convention for the lower ArmadilloCon rate. The deadline for the Omni Southpark has been extended five more days to July 26th. We don’t know how long the rooms will last, so act now!
We’ve posted a list of dealers attending our convention.
We have a great turn out for this year’s workshop! I am excited to meet you all (and to catch up with the returning students)! We’re going to have a great day working on our craft and learning about the business of writing in genre.
To keep the critique group ratios the same, we have added more professionals to the faculty roster. Check out the list at the bottom of the workshop page to see who will be sharing their knowledge and expertise on workshop day!
See you August 3rd!
Submissions have closed for this year’s workshop.
