      I’m attending World Fantasy Convention online for the first time. Do you guys have any advice?

      This is the first I’ve actually heard of that convention.

      I have some familiarity with that convention (at one point I was tossing the idea around of attending it in-person a year ago or so before everything else in the world happened) but haven’t kept up with it in 2020. Are they just offering sessions or do they also offer agent appointments and other interactive events?

        They are offering some interactive events, mainly zoom meetups I think.
