Writers Track

CombatCon™ is a must-attend event for writers concerned with authenticity and realism in their fights and for their combative characters.  This year, we are extremely proud to offer a dedicated Writers Track in which participants may take academic classes, attend panels and presentations, join in hands-on martial arts classes, handle real weapons and armor, talk with practicing martial artists, and watch their fights turned into reality by professional stage and stunt fighters.  Specifically, the Writers Track offers the following benefits over three days:

  • 14 hours of academic classes covering all manner of writing topics, including:
    • Combat  in  Literature Today
    • Beginner’s Guide to Writing Military Characters
    • Writing Women Warriors
    • Writing Realistic  Injury Scenes
    • How  to Start, Write and Finish a Novel
    • And more!
  • 6 hours of panels and presentations, given by our corps of published authors
  • An additional 20 hours of general panels and presentations, covering all manner of combat-related topics
  • The opportunity to see your own fight scene brought to life by professional stage and stunt fighters
  • Participation in two martial arts or stage/stunt fighting classes of your choice
  • The chance to watch demonstrations, armored melees, and the CombatCon™ tournaments
  • Admission to all CombatCon™ social events and activities, including the Time Traveler’s Ball

There is literally nowhere else in the world that will offer writers so much information about combat and martial arts in such a great package.  But don’t just take our word for it — come experience it for yourself!
