FrogCon 2020

I will be a guest author panelist at the first ever FrogCon at TCU in Fort Worth, TX this Saturday, February 22nd. FrogCon is a popular culture convention hosted by the TCU Library focusing on “geek” interests such as speculative fiction media, literature, arts/crafts, performances, music, tabletop and video games, and academic interests and future careers in same. It’s free for the public to attend and will take place from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM with panels starting at 10:00 AM. Here’s a link to the official website: https://libguides.tcu.edu/frogcon

Check out the website for all the details. It should be a really fun convention and if it does well it will be back next year and hopefully for many more years to come so come out and help make it a success. Here are the discussion panels that I will be on:

10:00 to 10:50 room #3181 or 3182 World Building – Creating in-depth universes to play hosts to your characters, in fiction and gaming. What are some pitfalls we have all faced, and how do we get around them?

11:00 to 11:50 room# 3181 or 3182 The Bit I Remember. – What do we remember from books and comics read, and movies and TV seen, long ago, and why? What makes these glowing moments stick in our heads? And conversely, what falls away only to startle us when we return to the narrative years later?

12:00 to 12:50 Conference Room #1208 Insecurity, Imposter Syndrome, and other Creative Pitfalls – Being a creator is hard. You put your stuff out there and hope for the best. But there’s often that feeling of not measuring up, that your stuff isn’t good enough, that nobody cares.

Check the schedule on the site for more awesome panel topics. This may end up being the only convention that I will be a guest panelist at this year and I’m really looking forward to it. I hope to see you there.
