Reddit’s r/fantasy is hosting an on-line convention

Posted in writing.

Reddit is hosting an on-line conven­tion, the r/fantasy virtual con.

If you don’t use reddit, it can be a bit confusing to start. The link above is the mega thread link, and at least on a computer (which is where I’m sitting now), the events are in the sidebar.

Links don’t go live until the event starts, but each event is persis­tent (i.e. you can go back and read the various Q&As and the other panels. There are AMAs (ask me anything), which I’ve done one of before; the panel is new, but I believe it just means more people answering ques­tions or riffing off each other’s answers. What happened for me the first time is that they “opened” the AMA, and I went through and answered ques­tions as they arrived. I assume some­thing similar is being done here.

You’ll need to have a reddit account to ask ques­tions or respond, but anyone can read anything posted there. My panel is on Saturday the 26th of April, along with K. D. Edwards, Fonda Lee, T. Frohock and Sherri Woosley.

    Thank you, Michelle, and thank you for the link to Kari Sper­ring’s read­ings. I read her first 2 books a long time ago and am delighted by the first 3 chap­ters of her Drowned Kings. Your warning that Reddit might be confusing for the novice was spot on. I took a quick look around and decided to go back when I more prepared to be confused.
    Thanks again.

    @Emile: I love her reading voice. She, Patrick Roth­fuss and I were put on the same hour long reading slot at the Montreal worldcon. She was, hands down, the best reader. Even the long suffering spouse agreed.

    @Emile: and I found reddit confusing at first. It all makes sense, but there are things like karma, awards, etc., that I still don’t quite under­stand. Mostly, I read :)

    Hey Michelle — not sure if I’m going to be able to conquer my own learning curve with reddit but after finally having at least Found the event (?) you’re in, now I’m wondering about what Time things get rolling? As someone else said, I usually too just read these things but thought I might Try to ‘attend’. Partic­i­pa­tion may be a bridge too far though. But i certainly won’t learn how to deal? manage? operate these sorts of things if I don’t at least Try? Any info you might have as to the time would be appre­ci­ated if it doesn’t add to your own stress (if any) about this. I cannot find it on? at? reddit. In any case, have fun!
