This weekend, Friday – Sunday, is the Creative Ink Festival for Writers, Readers, and Artists at the Delta Burnaby Hotel and Conference Centre. This festival is primarily directed towards writers and artists rather than fans, and is a great way to develop your craft and hang-out with fellow creators. There will be panels featuring established authors and artists discussing various writing and art topics, as well as single-person presentations. There will also be readings by authors, displays by artists, and an expo of people selling their goodies (books, art, etc), as well as Blue Pencil sessions where writers can get feedback on their writing from professionals and pitch sessions where people can pitch their projects to various editors and publishers. Cloudscape will be there, of course, with many of our artists providing presentations and workshops on writing and drawing comics, creating webcomics, and many other topics. It will be a lot of fun. For more information, visit the Creative Ink website. We hope to see you there!

Cloudscape at Creative Ink

Convention season is starting up and I’d to remind everyone that Cloudscape will be prominently featured at a exciting new convention: the Creative Ink Festival for Writers, Readers, and Artists on May 6-8. Unlike many other conventions, the focus at Creative Ink will be on creating stories and art yourself rather than simply enjoying those created by others. There will be panels with several people discussing various writing and art topics, as well as single-person presentations. There will also be readings by authors, displays by artists, and an expo of people selling their goodies (books, art, etc), as well as Blue Pencil sessions where writers can get feedback on their writing from professionals and pitch sessions where people can pitch their projects to various editors and publishers. Many artists from Cloudscape will be giving various presentations on writing and drawing comics, creating webcomics, and many other topics. It will be a lot of fun. So sign-up for Creative Ink and we hope to see you all there next month!
