This year’s event takes place Saturday, July 20, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday, July 21, 12 to 5 p.m., at Emerald City Comics, 4902 113th Ave N, Clearwater, Florida.
Inspired by our participation in larger conventions, such as MegaCon Tampa and Orlando, Tampa Bay Comic Con, and the cons held at local libraries, we decided to create our own version of a con with a literary twist. Nerdier Than Thou offers two days of programming featuring local writers across a variety of genres – sci fi, horror, fantasy, steampunk and more – as well as journalists, comic book writers, comedians and satirists, and paranormal investigators.
You can find a complete schedule of panels and presentations online at www.wordierthanthou.com. Some of the participating authors include Steph Post, Gale Massey, Craig Pittman, Kimberly Lojewski, Stefani Deoul, Arin Greenwood and Tyler Gillespie.
There is a suggested $5 donation at the door. All money raised will be benefit Wordier Than Thou’s literary programming. Wordier Than Thou is a Pinellas County-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that supports Florida writers and readers.
