Often the best conversations at a convention are the ones that carry over after a panel. Here we have provided a space for authors, editors, agents, and our partners to share their expertise in intimate meetings. These can either be a one-on-one about an area of expertise such as hypnotism, sailing, or contract law. Or it could be an offer to talk shop such as brainstorming sticky plot points, world-building dilemmas, or how to set up book tours.

Available topics this hour are:
  • Book Marketing
  • Writing Craft
  • Indie Publishing
  • Personal Conflict Dynamics and Resolution (for your character or you!)
  • Ask an Editor Publishing Questions
  • Social media expert
  • Medieval & Byzantine History
  • Structural Issues at Novel Length
  • Copywriting
  • Freelancing
  • Work-for-Hire
  • Brainstorming
  • World-Building
  • Fight Scenes!
