Writing About Fighting Series: Hand to Hand and Weapons Combat

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In reality, a fight can be over in seconds and a battle can be won in minutes. Come join the panel of authors at our traditional panel about kicking butt and writing it down.
