1. I’m using the slogan “Virtually the First One”, ’cause AmazingCon is a virtual convention and the first one. Also because if/when we host a live AmazingCon, we can still call that convention AmazingCon1, and because I think it a clever pun. Don’t you think it’s clever? Even witty maybe?
Fine. Come up with your own.

In addition to discussion panels, several writing workshops will be offered as well.*

Thanks to Artist, Fan Artist, Author, Musician Al Sirois (whose art should be familiar to most, if not all) we now have our program book cover (book will be delivered after the convention), a T-shirt design and a Convention Mascot:
What do we call our Mascot, that blue, propeller powered blob in a space helmet?
The T-shirt is now available for order through our store.
