What is Virtual FantasyCon?
Virtual FantasyCon is eight days of Facebook events showcasing the Fantasy community, allowing creatives to connect with Fantasy fans from around the world. It is exactly like a regular convention, except it is free, you don’t have to travel, and you can participate from the comfort of your own home, or anywhere you have a wi-fi connection.
Virtual FantasyCon has all of these features, but it is unique in the following ways:
- You don’t have leave home to attend.
- Distance is no longer an issue.
- Waiting in line no longer exists.
- It offers an opportunity to connect with participants and find new books and authors.
- To discover new blogs to read or sign up for.
- Artists will share artwork for books as well as original pieces. There will be Panel Discussions via Youtube.
