Empathetic Diversity Chat
Ross Island
Sat Jul 2 10:00:am – 11:00:am
Maybe you’re that one person in your gaming group who is always pointing out the lack of racially diverse characters in that one show you all like. Maybe you are the DM who is accused of being homophobic, though you’re not sure exactly how that happened, or quite what to do. Whether you are a frustrated advocate or flabbergasted, confused and accused…or even if you’d just like to learn more, let’s have a chat! Learn to give and receive diversity information with empathy and an open mind. Learn how nerds have an edge in this area and what we can do to hone our skills to an even finer point!
Amanda Baldwin, Amber Clark, Cat Rambo, Roget Ratchford

How do you get published today?
Sat Jul 2 3:00:pm – 4:00:pm
What worked yesterday won’t work now. Do you need an agent? Do you need a big publisher (assuming there are any left) Should you go small press or do it yourself? Come hear folks that are trying it one way or all of them.
Cat Rambo, David Boop, Frog Jones, Stoney Compton
