GeekGirlCONLINE Week 3 | Arts & Literature

GeekGirlCONLINE is going strong, and we hope you’re having as much fun with it as we are! This weekend we’re back with one of my favorite themes: Arts and Lit! Here’s some of the great content we have in store:

Panels & Activities

Join us Saturday at 1:00 p.m. for Making Monsters with Evan J. Peterson.

This workshop will teach you what makes for a great monster in fiction, films, and other arts. Whether you’re a writer, illustrator, performer, or all of the above, learn to create memorable monsters, who might just become your newest heroes!

Then, stick around because we’ll have Music with Nai Palm at 2:30 pm.

Join frontrunner Nai Palm of Hiatus Kaiyote as she speaks about their new album, navigating the fashion world and the medical world after getting a masectomy, and the wonderful nature of water. 

Plus, join us for Romance Rec for Every Geek’s Heart at 4:00 p.m. and Zines! with Lucy Kagan at 5:30 p.m.

We’ve also got plenty in store on Sunday, starting with Brick by Brick: Worldbuilding in YA at 1:00 p.m. Then, join us at 2:30 p.m. for Creator Shout Outs by Black Girls Create.

Black Girls Create is an intersectional hub for Black creators and critical fandom. The team behind the website is going to recommend the work of some amazing creators bringing great content. Attend this panel to hear about up and coming creators, where to find them, and how to support their work. Get ready to add titles to your TBR pile, watchlist, and more!

We’ll also have a Spotlight on Roseanne A Brown at 4:00 p.m., where author Roseanne A. Brown will discuss her debut novel, A Song of Wraiths and Ruin. Then Friend to Enemies to…? at 5:30 p.m will explore special ingredients that make up an irresistible fictional relationship.
