2019 WORKSHOP SCHEDULE

Workshops are in Con Space 2: Phys Ed Building

Workshop Room A: Classroom Room 223

Architecture Workshop Cecil Con 2019Architecture and World Building

Time: 11-11:50am
Category: Writing

The Fantasy genre is a rich and symbolic genre that has endless avenues to express a story. One of those avenues is the very physical world the story takes place in. This workshop will focus on implementing architecture, maps, urban planning, and history into a novel or series.

Drawing a simple map and giving names to places is never enough. Those places need to be there. How are they involved in the world you’ve created? Better yet, should they belong? Every castle/city/kingdom deserves a personality of its own. Writing that a castle has crenellations and stone battalions is no different than any other castle. What makes that castle in that city unique? Join Ryan as he shares his joint passions: Writing and Architecture.

B(u)y the Cover: the Amazing Tale of How Books Don’t Sell Themselves!

Time: 12-12:50pm
Category: Writing

You’re drafting your tale, perhaps you’re nearly done. If by “done” you mean writing “The End” at the bottom of a page, there may be something you’re forgetting. What about the cover? For indie authors not blessed with artistic talent, you have crucial choices to make about what to put on the front of your book. Before the first page, you have the chance to give readers a thousand words. But does it really matter? Will Hahn displays some of the rather odd choices others have made, and doesn’t spare himself from brutal cover scrutiny. Join in! Come gape, chuckle and discuss the way other writers have chosen to advertise their work.

This is a presentation for writers who don’t have or haven’t yet thought about putting a cover on their books.
