Frances Pauli Gibbitt Rhys-Jones Kamila Miller S. Evan Townsend Vanessa MacLellan Afraid of criticism? You shouldn’t be.

Learn how giving and receiving critiques is a necessary tool for every writer’s toolkit. Learn where to find writer’s workshops, what to look for in a writer’s group, and how to find or start one. Come and discover why the honest, constructive opinions of others allows your story or novel to become the best it can be.

Gibbitt Rhys-Jones Synthia Caldwell Through the 70s, 80s, and 90s, geeks banded together against an oppressive world that mistreated us and refused to understand us. We created acceptance and friends where previously we had only experienced bullying and ostracism. Now some geeks feel oppressed by a new threat: feminism. Except, the threat isn’t new. And it isn’t a threat. Male geeks and geek feminists have more in common than we have different. Let’s discuss the intersectionality of the geek cause with the feminist cause, and why inclusion, not busty body armor, should be the common interest that holds the geek community together.
