New! Norwescon Artists' Workshop

This year is the first of the Norwescon Artists' Workshop - a new program designed to help artists improve their craft. The workshop provides artists with an opportunity to develop their skills through a critique of their work by Norwescon panelists, professional artists, and their peers. It is also an opportunity to network with other artists, learn about markets and submissions, and be part of the community of artists at Norwescon. See our full announcement here.

Lazer Tag

Lazer Tag will be at Norwescon. To smooth and speed up the introduction process, we will provide a flyer in your swag bag containing the game rules and the release form. Read it and bring it with you to play! Extra rules and release forms will be at the Information Table near convention registration, and at each game. We will be sharing the game area and time with Nerf. This works well since we play nice with each other. See you in the arena!

The Hellbender Filmmaking Workshop

Let's make a movie at The Hellbender Filmmaking Workshop!

This fast-paced, energetic workshop will keep you engaged in a supercharged and fully immersive filmmaking experience!

"This was the most fun I had at the entire convention! And I still go back and re-watch it from time to time, ten years later, whenever I want a big ol' smile on my face. I can't think of any other convention experience I've ever had that I continued to enjoy ten years later."

That's only one of the many people who have been a part of this groundbreaking workshop.
