Writing For the Youth Market
Do you enjoy telling your children stories? Do you remember childhood stories of your own? Would you like to share them with other youth; to help shape and put a bug of creative imagination in to their minds? Why just infest your own children’s imagination, or that of friends and family, when you can tweak the youth of the world’s imagination. Buahaha…

Magic the Gathering Draft with Brandon Sanderson
Brandon loves playing Magic the Gathering. Brandon enjoys it so much that when he travels, he often puts out the word that he’s up for a game. Now Brandon is here at SpoCon, and he’s not just putting out the word, he’s offered us a tournament. So, come out and play in a MtG draft with our Guest of Honor, Brandon Sanderson! Did somebody say prizes? Why yes we did! Per Brandon, this will be a “Booster Draft.” Our friends at Gamer’s Haven will help administer this event. Seats are limited to 15 players, and please note that there will be an additional $25 fee to participate in this event.
