Explore everything from Anime to X-Files at Conbust 2015 this weekend…March 27-29!
Posted by kristipetersenschoonover
It’s time for Conbust 2015 up at Smith College this weekend! Three days of workshops, panels, classes, demonstrations, role playing games and more–covering everything from Dr. Who, Welcome to Nightvale and Found Footage to Cosplaying Basics and many aspects of writing including character creation and publication–starts at 5 p.m. Friday at the college’s Seelye Hall.
I’ll be involved in a few programs with some very talented people this year! Here’s my schedule for the weekend. The descriptions are from the Conbust website:
Being on panels is fun, but it’s also great to have time to sit in on other programming. Last year, I found the variety of subjects appealing and exciting — I went to some things I normally wouldn’t, like anime panels. I finally learned all about a bag of holding and gained an understanding of Creepy Pasta. I saw a Civil War bayonet drill. And most of all, I had a blast hanging out with friends–old and new (you can see photos from Conbust 2014 here)!

Hope to see you there…I’ll be on the road very shortly!
