    I’m writing to inquire about advertising opportunities at your Con. I represent an author who has fae characters in some of her books.

    Do you have a ‘freebie’ table? I would like to send some fliers about my e-stories.

    I’m just trying o figure out what exactly this is. I have gone to the Ren Fest ever since it started. Is this similar.

    • admin says:

      As big fans of Renn Fairs, we would have to say that there are similarities, but big differences. The main one is that an Escape is more participatory than most Renn Fests. For instance, while you can go to our panels and just watch, we encourage your input and involvement. Our workshops allow you to create a wide range of things, from stories to wings to costumes and so on. While most Renn Fests encourage you to interact with the performers, we encourage you to meet everyone, whether they are putting on the event or attending it like yourself. Finally, we hold the Escape in a compact, indoor location so people can focus on what they are doing rather than worrying about heat or where the bathrooms are :-)

      Hope that answers and you question and that you can join us!
