Hi! Welcome to the Realm Makers Blog Voyage. I’m going to do something a little different. I know others along this blog hop have shared why they like Realm Makers and why you should go. I’m going to share my own experience at Realm Makers, but through pictures. Enjoy!
First reason to go to Realm Makers: all the people you get to meet. Authors, comic book writers, editors, publishers, friends. Last year was special to me because I met Kathy Tyers, one of my favorite authors, my editor Jeff Gerke, and many friends who I have only known online for years.
Second reason you should go to Realm Makers: the great classes. From worldviews and how they influence one’s writing to how to write a comic script to swordplay. I can guarantee you won’t see those kinds of classes at your typical conference :)
Third reason you should go: the banquet. Now this isn’t just any banquet, this is a dress up banquet with a sci-fi/fantasy twist. Some of the attendees spent months planning out their costume! Of course, you don’t have to dress up, but if you’ve secretly always wanted to wear that medieval dress or steampunk outfit, this is the place to do it :)
And the last reason? It is affordable ($250 plus room and food). You just can’t beat that!
