DogCon is a big shindig that publisher Raw Dog Screaming Press holds every year to celebrate books, authors and all our supporters. It’s a chance for the RDSP family to get together, meet each other, show off the latest works and begin new creative ventures.
DogCon 5 at Broadkill Beach in Milton, DE!
At last year’s DogCon we announced that we were acquiring a beach house writing resort. This year, we’re inviting you to come see it! Activities will be running Friday to Monday but Saturday, October 1st and Sunday October 2nd will be the main event.
Each DogCon is different and this one will be more about strengthening the RDSP author community than having public book events. Activities on Saturday & Sunday afternoon/evening will be aimed at the public but other times will be more for the authors. However, anyone is still welcome to hang out the whole time. Plans are evolving but here are some of the things we will definitely do:
Group meals/snacks (likely a shrimp boil, s’mores, Gooey donuts and a cookout)
Readers Choice Award winner announcement presentation of the championship belt
State of the Dog Address, what does the future hold for RDSP?
Beach bonfire (weather permitting)
Visit to Dogfish Head Brewery (tours are available but are 1st come, not guaranteed)
Guest speaker publicity expert Beverly Bambury will give tips on book promo
One-on-one sessions with Beverly will be available for a fee
A live writing Instigation led by Mike Arnzen
Story Swap: authors will swap short pieces & perform each others’ work aloud
Thunderdome death matches (just kidding…maybe)
Authors will share promo tips
Readings by RDSP authors
