The Pros and Cons of Cons (Conventions)

No Responses

  1. Thanks for the tips! I’m going to my first convention in November, WFC in Toronto, and yeah, it’s expensive. So far I’ve spent close to $600 (hotel, membership, books) and there’s still three weeks left! Good thing I can’t afford to go to all of them . 😀

  2. One way to get a bit more credibility and access at cons is to volunteer. This can also decrease the cost some. I did this at Boscone and not only did I get to meet more of the high name authors/editors in a more relaxed atmosphere but next year my membership fee is waived and there is a possibility I may end up on a panel.
