Joy and I spent this past weekend in Baltimore at the inaugural Creatures, Crimes and Creativity (C3) convention. The organizers did it exactly right. There was something really special about the intimacy of interaction. Established writers blended seamlessly with the less-established. The panel I was on (and the master class I taught) were attended by people who were there to have a good time, and were ready to participate as active, equal members of the group. The zeitgeist of the even reminded me of the intimacy of Magna Cum Murder (sponsored by Ball State University), which has long been my favorite convention year-to-year. Schedule permitting, I’m a regular for C3, as well. A special word of thanks to Denise Camacho
, Austin S. Camacho
and all of the organizers for actively including Joy in the festivities. She’s a long-time veteran of these things, but this was the first convention ever where spouses were embraced as part of the creative team. Good on you, Austin, and every one of the organizers. C3 hit a grand slam on its first at-bat. Congratulations!
That was a very good panel. Learned a lot. B. Swangin is The Expert. OK Pamela K. Kinney
, Denise Golinowski
, Cathy Hill
, and all you other writerly people who did not go to the C3 convention, we’re calling you OUT. It was a blast, very informative, and we had a great time. You gotta go next year. More to come plus a few pics.
