#5  The last weekend in August is a great weekend for writers in Atlanta. I know, a first glance, it doesn’t seem so on the surface but there is no end to the writing panels, character development workshops, webcomics lectures and celebrity readings and signings at Dragon*Con. Writers can get seriously skooled. If you need a break from the shoulder to shoulder crowds at “The Con”, feel free to wear your Wonder Woman costume, hop the MARTA to the AJC’s Decatur Book Festival in the morning, and be back in Narnia or Westeros by noon.
