Hanne Madeleine “Iro” Paine loves books, space, and languages. At RavenCon, she will be teaching a friendly immersion class in Lang Belta, the creole language created for the sci-fi show The Expanse. Within the hour, you’ll be making your own sentences and ready to learn more with the Lang Belta community all over the world.
You can find Hanne wandering the halls in her jumpsuit and magboots, looking ready to clean the air filters or protest Earth and Mars’ exploitation of the Asteroid Belt, but actually hoping to chat about what you’re reading or teach you to swear like a multicultural citizen of outer space.
Hanne is online as @ItReachesOut, tweeting about language and education and helping produce a weekly Expanse character-themed cocktail; and on Reddit as /u/it-reaches-out, where she moderates the Expanse and Lang Belta communities.
