Hollie and I went up to Writers Fest and, after fighting with the fact Denver decided to tear up “every” street around the 16th Street Mall, we arrived a little over an hour late. There’s no greeting table, paperwork, badges, etc., anywhere. Finally we found a Tattered Cover employee (the third we stopped) who knew about the fest and sent us down a long hall to the meeting room. Readings were going on at the time, so we wait out in the hall with several other people. No one there knew where the tables with information were either. After 45 minutes standing around waiting to enter (which is a long time for those of us on canes), Hollie and I gave up. So did several other people. I hope the fest went well, but even a card table with some basic information at the entrance would have gone a long way (who knows, maybe even a tentative schedule of events as well).
So how was Writers Fest 2011?
We have absolutely no idea.
