Creative Ink Fest is fading into the past, but my memories of it aren't.
This was my most packed conference as a pro writer. I did four panels (including my first as a moderator), a reading, a signing, and Blue Pencil critiquing sessions for four writers.
If you are looking for a reasonably priced writing conference with quality panelists and presentations, then you should consider this one for next year. Sandra Wickham ran an exceptionally smooth weekend, the volunteers were lovely, and the venue was also great.
I had the opportunity to meet several online writer friends in person for the first time, which is always a blast, reconnect with old ones, and consume too many libations.
Creative Ink Festival 2016: an all-round good time.
(The giggling fit that resulted from this photo also garnered me and my friend Claire the most epic side-eye from a Canadian SF icon)
