We are gearing up for this to be the best convention/conference yet!
You may have noticed that we changed the term conference to convention and you may be wondering why.
Well in our experience, the word conference seems to indicate that you are merely there to meet for a consultation or discussion. The word convention means covering matters in a less formal setting.
Doesn't that convey what we are doing at the Creatures, Crimes and Creativity Convention. We are meeting in a less formal setting to convey or cover the world of writing for fans, readers and authors.
In discussing the name for the convention we wanted something that was all inclusive to the writing community. We however wanted to take into account those people who are "in the process" of writing and we thought, well all authors or wanna be authors are "creative". Then we wanted to make sure to include those mystery writers and thought of "crimes", after all what is a good mystery without a little bit of crime. However crimes also cover thrillers and suspense. Then we needed something that included our paranormal, Sci-Fi and Horror writers. So of course came 'creatures". So as you can see the title that we thought of had to include a lot of different genres and we feel that with the inclusion of all of the above mentioned genres, that the 'convention' would be a great way to bring it all together.
This is the second year and it has double in size from it's first year. We are so very happy and we hope that you will leave the C3 con with a newfound love of writing and also with a kick in the seat of your pants to put your butts in the chair and finish that novel.
So, have you signed up? If you have, leave us a comment about what you hope to accomplish at the convention.
