Salt Lake Comic Con 2017

Galaxy Press Rocked the Salt (Salt Lake City that is…)

We attended the Salt Lake City Comic Con which took place at the Salt Palace in downtown Salt Lake City with over 100,000 attendees over the 3-day event.

One of the best parts of attending these conventions is seeing amazing friends—judges from Writers and Illustrators of the Future, contest winners and the amazing fans! We also made some great new friends.

Our Writers of the Future judges Brandon Sanderson, Jody Lynn Nye and David Farland were on panels promoting Writers of the Future…

And they also talked about the Contest on television.

And then Terl showed up figuring he would steal the show.

But he was certainly not to be outdone by all the fans who stopped by our booth.
