Work has begun on preparing the program for Conflux 5. Currently, we’re finalising the 13 workshops we will be offering, and then it will be getting the Virtual Mini-con together. But if you’ve got any ideas for panels or things that you think would add to the overal ambience and fit in with our major theme of Dreaming and our minor theme of the Roaring 20s in New York, then email firstname.lastname@example.org
As a heads up, the overall look of the convention will be something like this:
Friday: nine workshops, three at a time, taking place at 9am, 12pm and 3pm, followed by opening ceremony around 7.30pm and a cocktail party. Dealers room will be open during this day, and art show possibly as well. All of this at the hotel
Saturday: three streams of panels, a stream of author readings and kaffee klatches, creative corner in the art show with some artists working there, mass book signing in the late afternoon, Prohibition era New York dinner in the evening.
Sunday: again, three streams of panels, a stream of author readings and kaffee klatches, creative corner in the art show, in the evening there will be a speak easy for some low key entertainment.
Monday: in the morning panels and author readings and kaffee klatches, in the afternoon workshops and closing ceremony and dead dog party.
While nothing’s set in stone, I’d be surprised if it varies from that too wildly. So let us know your thoughts. email@example.com
