On the guest list, we have names like Amandla Stenberg, Alexandra Bracken, Omar Epps, Megan Abbott Walter Mosely Angie Thomas, Diane Guerrero, Jason Reynolds, Leigh Bardugo, Marissa Meyer, Taye Diggs, and even Chuck Palahniuk. This con is bringing together many creative minds for you to meet!

Still, there’s plenty of other aspects to be excited about. From Young Adult Fiction to Sci-Fi, this con covers every aspect of the literary universe. And when you arrive, you’ll get to attend a packed out schedule of panels.  Combined with the workshops, these promise some stellar content as you learn to write, draw, and publish. Just don’t forget to stop by the exhibitors!
