SageFen Maker Fest
May 12th - May 14th, 2023
In the summer of 2022, SageFenCon changed its name to SageFen Maker Fest to better reflect the event. In addition to the previous year's workshops, demonstrations, and presentations, programming was expanded to include a full weekend writer's workshop, offering an opportunity for budding writers to write a short-short or flash fiction, with editing support, peer review, and resources for final editing and publishing. Filking concerts were added to the schedule for evening entertainment. Visiting guests of honor are Vandy Hall, Momma Sammu, and Ryan Wells.
