Authors Workshop Track: Flash Fiction!

Authors Workshop Track: Flash Fiction!

Write and Read Flash Fiction

Coming to the Authors Workshop Track at JordanCon 2024: A guided flash-fiction writing session on Saturday morning where prompts are provided! We’ll give you a short bit to put down some words, then you’ll read your story to your peers.

We love to see what comes from creatives!

Join us and let’s see what we come up with. Tentatively scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday.

Authors Workshop Track: Elevator Pitch!

What’s an Elevator Pitch?

A brief (30 seconds) way of expressing a story idea. It’s called an elevator pitch because it’s the time you’d spend on an elevator ride with someone. It might be what you’re working on, a story ready to sell, or a concept for upcoming work.

Bring your pitches to JordanCon and we’ll have a panel of guests just waiting to hear from you. They’ll be a good sounding board to find out of if your 30 seconds is effective in grabbing their interest and relaying your idea. For writers, pitches are a skill to be sharply honed.

We’re waiting to hear from you!

Tentatively planned for Saturday night at 10 p.m.

2024 JordanCon’s Got Slush

Writers – come join us! This is a moderated panel with publishing professionals where you can submit up to 600 words of your opening to be read anonymously, then get immediate feedback on your work.

We ask for the opening because a publisher might see little more than that if you don’t grab their interest. This is a chance to see how they’d respond after a couple of pages.

Submit your 600 words below in a Word doc. Keep it anonymous, just the title on the document and your opening. We’ll print it out for the panelists, and the moderator will read it out loud for the room.

We’ll have limited space on this workshop, so first come, first serve. Get your piece in early.  Our plan will be to get to all of the submissions, but we can’t control time.

Tentatively scheduled for Saturday evening at 8:30 p.m.

Friday Night Writer’s Workshop

Friday Night Writer’s Workshop

Friday Night Writer’s Workshop


Writers – this is your event! Industry professionals and your peers will read and critique 1000 word submissions.

You’ll get together in small groups with a couple guests and a few peers in a casual setting. This is an awesome chance to not only get feedback on a few pages, but give it as well.

Space is limited, so get your submission in early. Word documents only, double-spaced with default margins and readable font, so we can print them out for each critique pod. One submission per person. If you must revise and resubmit, it will change your place in the queue. Plan half an hour per reading so this will be a late Friday event which can last two hours or more. We’ll cutoff submissions when we reach capacity.

Scheduled for 8:30 p.m. Friday April 19, 2024 (results may vary so check the schedule when you arrive).

The Author’s Workshops Track!

The Author’s Workshops Track!

The Author’s Workshops Track is running with two old favorites for the writers at JordanCon!

First, the Friday Night Workshop is back!

Writers, we’ll take your 1000 word or less submissions starting in February, and then in April we’ll meet up at JordanCon and get together with some professionals in the industry and our peers for a critique of your work.

It’s casual and fun! You’ll meet people and get some views on some of your writing.

Watch for a post next month where we open up submissions for this!


Second, Saturday Slush again!

Have 600 words or less read anonymously while industry professional give immediate feedback on stage. Terrifying? Maybe. Useful – beyond measure!

We’ll open up with a limited number of available slots in February after another announcement.


But wait, there’s more!

We’re going to work on Elevator Pitches! Bring a pitch, hit the professionals with it, and they’ll let you know how effective you were. We’re aiming for Saturday for this event as well.
