Ascendio is going to be four days of non-stop Harry Potter fun! Approximately 1,000 Harry Potter fans will converge on Orlando from July 11-15 to celebrate the novels we love, the films that entertain us and all the fannish things that have been inspired by the Harry Potter series.
Ascendio is, at heart, an academic conference, meaning two of the days will feature a “Formal Programming” schedule of presentations, panels, workshops and roundtables including the Quill Track focusing on books and writing. Some of the authors, agents, editors and publishers include Lev Grossman (author), Cecilia Tan (publisher & author), and Omnific (publishing company). All of Ascendio’s content is by the fans, for the fans, though many of our presenters are academics, media personalities and “fandom celebrities.” In the U.S. and Harry Potter fandom, Ascendio is taking place from 11 July to 15 July at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.
The OTW will have an information table about the org at Ascendio. So if you'll be there, stop by and say hello to our volunteers!
