Confirmed Authors

We have a fantastic crew of authors coming this year! Check out who all will be there.

Be the Campaign

Story Con will succeed or fail in some measure based upon your enthusiasm. While we do have a facebook page, we don't have the staff this year to create a true social media campaign. If this thing is going to rock, it will take your participation in a grassroots marketing effort. Help us get readers there by advertising your participation to your fans, and let the public know through social media and sites like Meetup.

It's your con--Be the Campaign! Direct readers to: and feel free to use the logo image at the top of this email.

Where We Stand

Story Con 2014 is going to fly! I am excited with how well this is coming together. It's going to be small. We are aiming for between 250 to 300 attendees at any given moment. I expect that some people will only come for a couple of hours so overall attendance should be a little higher. To be honest I am mostly worried this year about overwhelming our venue, but that is problem I will take.

Consider our first year as a proof of concept. I believe that the Portland Metro area is ripe for a new reader focused convention! Such conventions have been hugely successful in the past and I expect they will be again in the future.

We aren't even done with 2014 and the team is already talking about 2015. We already have some ideas about what we want to do to build enthusiasm over the next twelve months... but that's getting a little ahead of ourselves. For now we are just looking to create a great event that builds momentum. I'm really happy to have all of you on board.

I can't wait,
Erik Wecks
