7pm – So This Is Your First Con
Cons are awesome! They’re also weird and wonderful. Experienced congoers give you some tips on cons. And make some friends to wander around the con with.

There’s also a LOT of panels I want to attend. Like Costume-Con, Can-Con is more about developing yourself as a writer/costumer than it is about buying things and running around in costume. Which I might do anyways, for lolz.
- Big Workshops panel, what are they like? (ie Clarion, Superstars, etc)
- Book Pitches
- Character workshop
- Getting noticed in the slush pile
- Kaffeklatches (basically ‘have coffee with the guests of honour and chat about shit’)
- Destroy your story gremlins Workshop
There’s also room parties <3
If you’re in the city, I hope to see you there! If not, then I’m making a grumpy face at you.
