What does Fan Expo have to do with writing? Some of the most famous writers of the comic book, Anime, Horror and Sci-Fi are going to be there.
The Fan Expo Convention runs from Thursday, August 23 to Sunday, August 26 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It will feature over 100 small presses, an opportunity to show off your drawings to industry professionals and an opportunity to get an in depth look at the self-publishing scene. You will find out how to break in, get published and get your stories in front of readers.
The Premium Package is sold out but the Deluxe pass and single day passes are still available. Visit the website at http://www.fanexpocanada.com for more details.
There will be appearances by your favorite DC comic book writers and artists. Brian Azzarello, writer of Before Watchmen for Rorshach and Comedian will be a guest. Ed Greenwood, creator of The Forgotten Realms World will also be attending Fan Expo so it’s a great opportunity to get a chance to see people who work behind the scenes of your favorite genres.
This will be my 3rd year attending Fan Expo and since there was so much to see and experience, I purchased a Deluxe Pass which allows me to attend all 4 days. It also allows me to receive my pass Thursday at 2pm, when the convention starts at 4pm. I had an amazing last year, took lots of pictures, got to see many of my favorite stars and my daughter got an autographed copy of the latest book by Heather Brewer; author of the Vlad books.
If you have an opportunity to go, for even one day, you should. As a fan of horror, sci-fi, anime, gaming and comics, you wouldn’t want to miss out.
