IBF 2021 Highlights

We just closed the chapter on IBF 2021, and it was amazing to have readers and authors join us for virtual panels for two whole days! We chatted about magic, our favorite villains and literary techniques, and even debunked a few fantasy trope myths. Many of you tuned in to participate in polls, giveaways, and Q&As. Although there will never be enough words to fully express it, we want you to know that we are extremely grateful! Thank you for listening and being a part of the conversation. Most of all, thank you for your participation during these times. This was a celebration of fantasy like no other.
