Where I’ll Be: Gen Con Writer’s Symposium 2019

A favorite moment with Rich Lescouflair from last year’s Gen Con!

I’m looking forward to another chance to participate in the Writers Symposium at Gen Con this summer! Indiana is the state I was raised in, and there’s lots of chances to see old friends as well as my brother Lowell. I also did well in this year’s hotel lottery, so socializing will be easier.

The first Gen Con I ever went to was back when I was a teenager and first playing D&D. It’s always amazing to see how far the game has come as well as how much more mainstream it’s become, as well as how much more diverse. The Writers Symposium is always well-organized and a great chance to hang with fellow writers who also happen to be gamers.

I’ll be participating in the Worldbuilders fundraising event once again as well, come play Settlers of Catan with me.
