Today is the last day to preregister for Confluence (; after today, you'll need to register at full price at the door. (If you're coming from out of town, the Confluence Sheraton is completely sold out and so is the Quality Inn next door, but at last report, other hotels nearby still had rooms left.)

Since the last time I posted here, we've added three more acts to the Confluence concert lineup. The D&D-themed six-piece band Bard City ( will be performing on Saturday; experimental vocalist and ukulele cover artist H_narb ( and nerdcore rapper GR3YS0N ( will be performing on Sunday. We've also filled in the workshop schedule: Rhiannon's Lark will lead geeky guided meditation; LEX the Lexicon Artist will talk about adding meaning when writing songs about pop culture; Gregg Stone will show us how AI can help our songwriting; and our troupe of Featured Entertainers, The Confused Greenies, will lead improv games. Here's the final final music schedule😉; for the full schedule that includes author panels, art demos, and much more, see See some of you there!
