Sherocon 2020, a comic book convention, and Digital LA’s Digital Women’s Day Retreat, will be hosting me as well as a bunch of other fine women to discuss writing for games, comics, digital, and more. If you’re in LA this weekend, armed with hand sanitizer, and interested in learning more about writing cross platform or game narrative, come on down!
First up is the second annual Sherocon! In honor of Women’s History Month, SheroCon 2020 offers a bunch of comics exhibitors and speakers, as well as a costume contest. This free, family-friendly event runs from noon-6pm. I’ll be joining a panel of women writers to discuss writing across multiple media.
