Welcome to UTOPiAcon 2016!
It’s time to disobey…
…everything that you were told about the way things are supposed to be.
…everyone who said you were crazy, who told you “you can’t,” and who tried to make their truth yours.
…every rule and made up game that tries to limit your possibilities and your dreams.
It’s time for you to…
…cultivate your confidence.
…unmask your fears.
…unleash your courage.
…rally the troops.
…create something new.
…build something big.
…believe in yourself.
It’s time for you to lead your own dream rebellion. It’s time to take charge, and turn wishes into reality.
UTOPiA was created to stir the pot, to shake things up, to challenge the publishing conference and signing status quo. We want to create a movement that unites like-minded writers, readers, dreamers and doers. We want you to believe in the imaginary and the impossible. Because…
It’s not impossible. It’s only unprecedented.
There will be struggle. But, if it were easy everyone would be doing it. Isn’t your dream worth fighting for?
Do you believe you can do it? Do you believe you are worth it to try? How badly do you want what you want?
Are you brave enough to never give up no matter the judgments?
Are you strong enough to lift up others?…because whoever said it’s lonely at the top climbed the mountain alone. And there is no greater journey than one shared with others.
Are you ready to claim responsibility for your dream, to let go of excuses and blame?
Are you ready to live the life you thought you could only dream about?
One act of courage…
…can change the world, so why not your life?
Quit waiting for permission. Quit waiting for the right time, the right money, or for the stars to align just perfectly. Decide now, and commit to going for what you want with everything that you have.
There will only ever be one you in the history of EVER. That is EPIC. You are EPIC. Don’t waste one more moment on wishing things were different. Make them different.
UTOPiA is not a place. It is a mindset. It is the trail you blaze, the risks you take, the friends you make, the stories you share, the victories you celebrate, the love you give, the dreams you lead.
