New LGBT Convention: Rainbow Con 2014
I don't know much about this, but I wanted to post something because it looks interesting and I think my blog readers like to know these things.
There's a new convention called Rainbow Con, and it's taking place next March in Tampa, FL.
RainbowCon is a four day QUILTBAG-centric conference held in Tampa, Florida geared toward readers, writers, artists, and small publishers. Throughout the four days of the conference, attendees can enjoy panels, workshops, activities, and even a field trip into the heart of Ybor's club district! RainbowCon is also a deliberately small conference, limiting the number of general attendees to 175, with authors and special guests making up the remaining 75 slots in its 250 attendance cap.
2014 may be its first year, but we have plenty in store for those attending. The panel descriptions, special guests, and venue are already up, and while registration information is available, formal registration and hotel booking will not open until March 1st, 2013.
We hope you enjoy the content to be found in RainbowCon. Our schedule features both an reader track as well as a writer track, catering to those on both sides of the proverbial pen. Workshops are available for aspiring and established writers alike. We also offer roundtable discussions of sub-genres of QUILTBAG literature and activities, so there are plenty of opportunities to participate and socialize. RainbowCon is all about the personal approach, and it's our goal to ensure each attendee has a fantastic time!
