Just before Infinitus last year, HPEF announced its eighth Harry Potter fan-created, fan-run event: Ascendio. We’re returning to Universal Orlando – but the Portofino Bay Resort this time, to celebrate fans, fandom, fan creativity and more!
Join a thousand wizards- and witches – from July 12 – 15, 2011 as we let our discussions, imaginations, friendships and insights “Take Flight” – and, of course, visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, debate still-unresolved questions from the books, analyze the films, analyze Pottermore and J.K. Rowling’s interviews, explore other fantasy and Young Adult novels and worlds with novelists like Lev Grossman and Aimee Carter and bloggers like Mark Oshiro of MarkReads, and more! Our programming sessions are grounded in the proposals submitted by our attendees, so please check out our Call for Papers , our Meet Up Organizational Form of Organizations, and our forthcoming Call for Crafts and Art. Later this fall, we’ll be opening auditions for performers and musicians for our theatrical review, Wand By Wand By Wizards.
