Each year at JordanCon, the Workshops track strives to present a variety of classes. In 2019, we explored skills like glass cutting with a master, to the basics of 3D printing, to learning about Medieval Irish garb. Because what we offer is driven by what our attendees want to learn, and what attendees and guests are willing to teach; we need to know what interests you.
The new Workshops co-chair, Amelie Downing, and I want to know what new skills, hobbies, or techniques you want to learn at JordanCon 2020 and beyond. There is a wide-ranging list of previous suggestions, including dance classes, fiber arts, and make-up application tricks for you to peruse. Click on everything that interests you. If there is a class you want that isn’t listed, or if you are willing to teach a workshop, there are selections in the poll for that as well.
It is important for us to keep the classes accessible to as many people as possible while also offering complex concepts and tangible creations, so please give us feedback about workshop fees and sign-up policies. Now is your chance to let us know what you think and what classes you would like offered!

If you have any questions about the poll or the Workshop Track in general, please reach out to us via our email: workshop at Jordanco.org
JordanCon 2020 – Age of Legends
Here’s your chance to become a character in an upcoming novel by New York Times Bestselling author, and 2019 JordanCon Guest of Honor Brent Weeks!
Brent has very kindly donated the rights to name a minor character in one of his upcoming works. The stunning conclusion to the Lightbringer Series, THE BURNING WHITE, set to be released in late 2019, and will go into production in a few weeks. As the winner of this auction, you can submit a name (or variation thereof) that may appear in that book, or another upcoming project of Brent’s choosing. There is no guarantee that the name will be used in a specific book, but it will be used somewhere, and whatever he does is bound to be great. The character named will play a minor role in the work; there is no promise of dialogue or impact on the plot, but Brent will do his best to make the appearance a memorable one.
Rules and Conditions If you participate, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to the terms and conditions below.
● Brent will adapt the winning bidder’s submitted name to fit the world of the Seven Satrapies or Midcyru. Usually this means altering the spelling/pronunciation to fit the culture of the fictional world.
● Brent reserves the right to reject any name he may find to be inappropriate.
● If the winning bidder chooses to submit the name of someone else, the winning bidder must submit a written release from this other person giving permission to use their name.
● Finally, we hope it goes without saying, but: the submitted name will be rejected if Brent feels that it is in any way offensive, ill-intentioned, or disruptive to the story.
● This auction is for the name only . The winning bidder may not dictate the character’s personality, description, or role in the story. Any such ideas become the sole property of Brent Weeks with no further compensation or acknowledgement.
● If you are the winning bidder, you must provide contact information (Full name, proposed character name, email address, physical address, telephone number)
Novel Release Date for THE BURNING WHITE is in late October 2019. However, publication dates are naturally subject to change. The winning bidder may receive email with updates on the actual release date.
In honor of International Women’s Day, JordanCon is proud to announce our Women of the WoT’Mere Fan Favorites Contest! The first ever bracket is set. We tallied your nominations and used your input to create match-ups for 16 of the most amazing female characters from “The Wheel of Time” and the Brandon Sanderson’s Cosmere.
Between them, Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson created some of the strongest, most inspirational female characters out there. This is a chance to celebrate your favorite female characters, so let’s keep it positive. We’re not asking who is ‘strongest’ or who would win in a fight. We just want to know who your favorite female character is so we can celebrate the great women of the WoT’Mere. Comments gushing about what you love most are highly encouraged!
Voting takes place daily on Facebook and Twitter. You can view the full bracket (featuring top nominees and their rankings of 1-16) here:
