They say that Hal-Con is “the biggest, geekiest SF convention in Atlantic Canada, a sci-fi, fantasy and gaming convention run completely by much-too-dedicated volunteers…”, which makes it a perfect place for us to go.
We’ll be two of many guests (headliners including John DeLancie and John Rhys-Davies, among many other notable actors, artists, writers, comics folks and cosplayers). It’s our first time in Halifax and we’re really looking forward to it.
Besides a fair number of panels and signings, Peter and I will be doing — at least once, maybe twice — the two-hour “Screenwriting 101” microworkshop: a beginners’ guide focusing on how to write a script and what to do with it once you’ve got it. Workshopping is always a high spot for us at an event like this, and we hope it’ll be the same for the attendees.
The convention runs from October 30 to November 1 and will be held at the World Trade & Convention Centre + The Scotia Bank Centre in Halifax.
See you there!
