Realm Makers 2017 is here!
This is my first year to attend and I'm really looking forward to it. There's always something exciting and special about any writers conference but Realm Makers is unique in it's focus on speculative fiction written from a Christian perspective. Speculative fiction has always been my go to style of reading and writing so naturally I'm drawn to this conference. It's the comic-con of writers conferences.
This year, my main focus is not a story pitch (although, I do have this as a side goal), mostly I'm going to connect with other like minded writers and learn from the workshops and speakers. The take-aways from writing conferences I've attended in the past have always surprised me. I've started with a specific goal in mind and come away with something different, unexpected and yet, still amazing. So, I'm finding it's better not to get too caught up in my own goals and just allow myself to be open to whatever the Lord has in mind.
What will the take-aways be from Realm Makers this year? That's all part of the mystery and excitement.
