Hi, Kenji and Tundra...
I'm in New Hampshire as well, Keene to be more
precise, I would enjoy an opportunity to attend
a conlanger's conference in New England...
If one such could be put together, maybe
presentations of each one's experiences
in conlanging vocab and grammar, and perhaps
if I get access to the conference rooms at
our local college here in Keene, we could have a
a really neat meeting in New England.
There's by the way a local Esperanto
group that, hey why not, we could invite
to attend, I'm sure some of them might
also dabble in the secret vice of conlanging.
