About the Imaginarium Convention
The Imaginarium Convention made its debut in 2014 and is now heading into its 6th year with a central focus on providing creative writers and other creative talents educational, networking, professional, and mentoring opportunities. In 2019, The Writer Magazine named the Imaginarium Convention the best writing conference in Kentucky and the 2nd best writing conference in the Southeast USA.
The Imaginarium Convention welcomes all genres and levels of experience. Imaginarium maintains an inclusive, welcoming environment that brings together the vibrant atmosphere of a convention with the content-rich nature of a major writers conference. Three days filled with over 130 panels and workshops provide creative individuals of all levels of skill and experience an abundance to choose from to develop skill-sets further on their professional and artistic journeys.
Spotlighting and raising awareness of talented creative individuals is another area of emphasis for the Imaginarium Convention. Our juried Imadjinn Literary Awards given at our annual awards banquet are one way in which we recognize and celebrate top level talent. Another way is through our Imadjinn Book Fair and Expo, which showcases a large number of creative professionals to the public throughout the convention weekend.
In supporting creative writing in all forms, The Imaginarium Convention embraces Game Development and Film/TV production, including programming content in each of these areas, a weekend-long gaming room, and an independent film festival with juried awards.
More recently, The Imaginarium Convention has begun to develop the Imaginarium Initiative, to help facilitate support and educational opportunities for communities in need. Our first target area for this program will be the Eastern Kentucky region.
A positive event that provides a wide range of support and beneficial elements to a diverse array of attendees, Imaginarium is dedicated to continue growing and expanding what we can offer to those pursuing a creative path.
