- Workshops. Workshops for wizards could include How to spot a Lying, Cheating, Lazy Apprentice before they wreck the home, How to Improve your Firework Production spells, and Why Every Wizard Needs Someone to Rein Them in before Power goes to their heads. The last one is particularly important. Given wizards are so powerful, someone needs to be able to check them before they run amok.
- Panel Discussions. Once the arguments about who should lead the discussions were over, panel topics could include Why Wizards Need to Work Together More, Are Wizards being overlooked in the Fairytales in favour of Witches?, and How to Produce a Really Good Smoke Ring without Magic. (See Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings as the considered expert on the latter subject).
- Magical Exercises. To include How to Cast a Spell Quicker than your Opponent and How to ensure you are never surprised or outmanoeuvred by anyone ever again. Both exercises will take place out doors where there is lots of space and nothing is going to get blown up (or if it does, it really does not matter).
So following on from what would be on offer at conferences for fairies and witches, what could the wizards expect at an event put on for them? (These days smoking is not allowed in public places in the UK. Here every wizard would smoke and not think twice).
I'm Allison Symes and I write novels, short stories as well as some scripts and poems. I love setting my work in my magical world, the Fairy Kingdom, and my favourite character is Eileen, who believes hypocrisy is something that happens to other people without caring that statement is hypocritical in itself! Eileen is huge fun to write for and about.
