My Adventures in … Fort Collins 2014

Recently I gave the keynote speech at the 2014 Northern Colorado Writers Conference. The whole event was an amazing blast. The NCWC is based in Fort Collins, CO, an amazing city to visit. It’s filled with college students, fun people, indie shops, microbreweries, and the like.

I have pasted some fun pictures from the event below. If you attended and want to see Kerrie’s entire photobucket album, see it here.

If you like anywhere in the area of Fort Collins, check out this event in years to come. It’s hosted in the spring (usually March or April) and has great people, agent pitching, sessions, gatherings, critiques, and more. It’s my second time teaching (after 2008) and I’m glad I went again.

Signing books after the speech. Each of the 130 or so attendees got a copy of HOW TO SURVIVE A GARDEN GNOME ATTACK, which was awesome to see.

Event organizer extraordinaire Kerrie Flanagan had a running gag throughout the conference about a wild garden gnome on the loose. It was fun, and people took pictures of themselves with the (ever-moving) gnome.
