I know, I have recently posted about upcoming things. But there are more! Here’s an updated schedule of IF-related events in the near future. There’s also a terrific, ongoing IF events calendar over here.

Nov 9, Boston: I talk about Versu at the PR-IF meeting: this is in particular a chance to check out the tools and play experience. Attendance is free and all are welcome, but make sure you check out the instructions about how to get to the room where it’s being held, as the MIT campus can be a little confusing.

Nov 15-17, New York: I talk about narrative design in Versu at PRACTICE. Andrew Plotkin will also be attending. This conference does have a substantial registration cost.
I will separately be doing a gameplay-and-tools demo in New York on an adjacent day, if possible without the stiff admission price. Date and time still being worked out, but if you want to make sure you’re notified of the details, let me know and I’ll add you to the mailing list.
