How far would you go for your art? Would you risk a duel at dawn? Face an armoured warrior? Fight an axe-wielding assailant, with only a spoon? Authors CC Humphreys, Sebastien de Castell, Kris Sayer and JM Landels will discuss their personal journeys studying swordplay (and spoonplay) to enrich their writing, characters and stories. With live sword fights and show and tell by Academie Duello, fans of fiction, fantasy and history will be entertained and delighted!
