Story Con 2015 Will Not Take Place

Barnes and Noble Closing: Periodicals

Since I created and ran StoryCon 2014, I’ve been thinking a lot about StoryCon 2015. I’ve held exploratory meetings. I’ve worked to find a site that would work with us, and all of that part has gone well. From an organizational point of view we are set up pretty well.

What I have also been doing is making sure that this project of creating a reader focused convention is sustainable with my core mission of developing my writing career. That part… well it hasn’t gone so well, and I have come to the conclusion that I cannot do both.

So, I need to announce that I will not be creating StoryCon 2015. I’m not capable of doing that and advocating for my writing at the same time. If there is someone who wants to step up and create the convention. I would be happy to meet with them and consult with them along the way.

Thank you so much for your support and interest. I wish you all the best.
