What is Give Good Spec?"Calling all storytellers--no matter who you are or what you create, if you're a fan of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror, this panel is for you. This triad of awesome is known as speculative fiction, and it's popular for a reason, and it comes in many forms--fiction, manga, the graphic novel--but popular can sometimes be problematic (hello, clichés and tropes!). So how do we give good spec? We get to the heart of storytelling!" -- Colossal Con program
Give Good Spec! is a fun and highly interactive panel, where we look at the genres of speculative fiction, discuss why they're awesome, why they suck, and how to do the genres justice. We'll be doing plenty of activities, including writing and drawing, while we focus on the essentials of a great story. And yes, I'll send you home with some goodies, too!
Can't wait to see you there!
