Teen Con ~ Saturday, July 23, 2016 ~ 12-3pm ~ Website

New Castle-Henry Co. Public Library ~ 376 South 15th Street ~ New Castle, IN 47362

The New Castle-Henry Co. Public Library is a lovely structure, rich in history and overflowing with innovation. Krystal Stanich is overseeing the 2nd Teen Con at NCHCPL after a very successful event last year.

The Courier Times wrote an article on last year’s event, and The Star Press has an image gallery from last year. IndyWebComics has a feature on this year’s event. Check them out to see what this event will be like! And come see us!

Realm Makers ~ July 28-30, 2016 ~ Website

Villanova University ~ 800 E. Lancaster Avenue ~ Villanova, PA 19085

Realm Makers is a writers’ conference where faith and fantasy collide. Anything fun, crazy, and “out there” goes. Frequently referred to by attendees as the most fun writers’ conference in existence, we encourage you to experience it for yourself.

Also, we have an exclusive opportunity for those attending Realm Makers. Love2ReadLove2Write Publishing will be accepting submissions at the 2016 Realm Makers. Since general submissions will not open until early next year, this is an excellent opportunity for authors to show us their best work. Michele Israel Harper, author and acquisitions editor, will be representing us at this event.

Gen Con Indy 2016 ~ August 4-7 ~ Website

Indiana Convention Center ~ 100 S. Capitol Ave ~ Indianapolis, IN 46225

Hailed as “the best four days in gaming,” Gen Con Indy is much more than the elaborate games for which it is known. Outstanding costumes, author alley, exhibitions, award-winning artists and authors, and thousands of events make up just a smidgeon of this highly-anticipated occasion.

And this year, we get to be a part of it. Wear your best costume, come see us at author alley, and get your game on!

American Christina Fiction Writers Conference ~ August 25-28, 2016 ~ Website

Omni Hotels & Resorts ~ Omni Nashville Hotel ~ 250 Fifth Avenue South ~ Nashville, TN 37203

We have been approved as a vendor for ACFW’s Marketplace! This is an exciting opportunity for L2L2 Publishing, and we hope to meet many aspiring and well-established authors, as well as enjoy ACFW classes and the relaxation the resort has to offer. This is the largest Christian writers’ conference, and it is truly thrilling to be a part of the voice of Christian fiction. Will we meet you there?

Indiana Faith and Writing Conference (IFWC) ~ October 28-29, 2016 ~ Website

Anderson University ~ 1100 E. Fifth Street ~ Anderson, IN 46012

Our final event for the year will be Anderson University’s Indiana Faith and Writing Conference.

This small writers’ conference is rich in academic and CBA publishing information, with exciting workshops this year about pitching and writing one’s first screenplay, writing unforgettable characters, and the fine art of handling rejection.

Our fiction will tentatively be at IFWC’s book fair.

Our publishing house will be represented at each of these events, displaying our fiction, and featuring a few of our authors to sign their books for you. We hope to see you there!

Honorable Mentions:

These events were either sold out, at the same time as other events, or simply too much to plan in one year. But if you are able to attend, they are worth mentioning. We would love to be there as well!

Taylor University’s Professional Writing Conference ~ August 5-6 ~ Website

Taylor University has one of the top Professional Writing Degrees in the Country, and this is their first year hosting a writers’ conference. Their line-up of speakers, editors, and agents is incredible. And the two-day conference is only $99 for two full days. We would love to be able to go! It just happens to be the same time as Gen Con this year.

Indiana Authors Awards ~ Indianapolis Main Library ~ October 29 ~ Website

A day full of free classes, and a black-tie awards banquet in the evening.
