Whether you’re trying to pitch a Pride and Prejudice and Werewolves spin-off or are stuck writing the next Great American Novel, the friends you’ve antagonized by constantly talking about your book might need a break this weekend. What better place for an aspiring writer than Litlando? The
conference on Saturday covers seven major topics, including weird fiction, flash fiction, contemporary poetics, the role of comic books in America and the necessary subject of literary publishing. The folks at the Drunken Odyssey organizing Litlando call it “the day-long literary equivalent of an MFA,” and at $25 a ticket, that’s the cheapest degree we’ve seen in a long time.
11 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 27 | The Gallery at Avalon Island, 39 S. Magnolia Ave. | thedrunkenodyssey.com/litlando
