Would You Like to Be in a BFXXIV Workshop

Do you have something to share at Virtual Bones Fest? We will have a Tips, Techniques, and Food for Thought session. If you have a relatively short (10-15min.) presentation, contact Steve Brown at We have a limited number of slots, and would ask that you focus on teaching techniques or new information. Remember that each person will have a chance to demonstrate their own personal style in the Introductions Session.
