I’m looking forward to being a part of the Imaginarium Convention for the fourth straight year. The convention returns to Louisville for its sixth year Oct. 11-13 at the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Conference Center. It was recognized in 2019 as Kentucky’s No. 1 writers event (and the second best in the Southeast USA) by The Writer Magazine.
Imaginarium hosts a weekend full of panels and workshops, an independent international film festival, a book fair and expo, cosplay, gaming, literary and film awards, and much more!
A description of the panels on which I will be serving as a guest, along with some other knowledgeable folks:
How to Get Along with Editors – Tips on how to build a trusting and productive working relationship with your editor. (Fri 4:30 pm in room Derby)
Research Done Right – How to effectively do productive and correct research prior to writing your story. (Sun. 9 am in room Derby)
Non-Fiction Writing – Ways to correctly write a true non fiction story. (Sun. 11:30 am in room Derby)
Walking in Another’s Shoes – Writing character POVs, how far to push the stereotype without offending. (man writing woman) (writing older or younger characters) (race or religion) (Sun. 2 pm in room Heartland)
Get a look at all the panels and workshops offered this year here.
My wife, children’s book author Kimberly S. Hoffman, will present a workshop on How to Create a Program for your Book – Looking for ways to market your book? A program is an excellent way to connect with the public and advertise as well as make a difference in your community. Kimberly Hoffman will be presenting a 90-minute workshop on how you can create a program for your book. Topics include how to develop your topic, formats for presentation, how to engage your group, advertising your program, modifying program for various ages, etc. (90 min) (Sat. 2:30 pm in room Iroquois)
We will also have a table in the Imaginarium book fair, where you can chat with us. Our books will be available for sale.

I hope you can make it for some, or all, of the convention. It’s a great time with lots of great people.
