At WisCon, we believe that stories come in many forms, and can be told across many media.
That’s why, for WisCon 41, we are changing our approach. The old WisCon Writing Workshop will now be known as WisCon Workshops.
What’s in a name change? Why does it matter?
It matters because we want to offer more to our community — that’s y’all. Critique sessions are super valuable and we are always going to provide those for WisCon attendees who are ready for that level of review and feedback. But we are also dedicated to offering up more How To workshops — and more workshops that aren’t for writers at all.
Because everyone deserves support when it comes to telling their story.
That’s why this year you’ll find offerings like Handspinning and Life Drawing in amongst the stuff like How to Write Comic Books with Kelly Sue DeConnick and our Fan Fic Drabble challenge that runs all weekend. The WisCon Workshops team knows that the WisCon community is full of people looking to share their voices. We are here to help, no matter what form that takes.
