fancon this summer!
Thanks to the mods for allowing me to post about Ascendio
, the 8th fancon organized by HPEF, the team HP events like Infinitus, Lumos and Nimbus - 2003. It's taking place in Orlando from July 12 - 15, and as at our past events. we're having loads of amazing Harry Potter-centric discussions, wrock, theatrical performances, members of StarKid, a talk by Chris Rankin, Quidditch and so much more.
This year, we're also hosting Veronica Roth and other authors including Lev Grossman, Beth Revis and Aimee Carter, as well as Mark Oshiro of MarkReads, and having a slew of sessions about writing, publishing, getting an agent, etc. It's part of a regular registration, and we're calling it The Quill Track
! Veronica is going to talk about Divergent, do a reading and a signing, and squee with the rest of us about Harry Potter.
In addition to author readings, book clubs, signings and discussions, we're also hosting a number of literary agents, who will be on panels discussing commercial publishing vs. self-publishing, LGBTQ in YA, how to get an agent, and more. They'll also be taking one-page pitches and giving feedback to Ascendio attendees.
It's going to be an amazing event, and we hope to see many of you there! You can Follow us on Twitter
