requests for assistance now being taken for October-December cons

Con or Bust is now taking requests for assistance from non-white fans/fans of color [*] who are interested in attending SFF cons in October, November, or December 2012. These include World Fantasy Con (November 1-4, Toronto), which has donated two memberships, each accompanied by two hotel nights, and Gaylaxicon (October 5-7, Minneapolis), which has donated two memberships. These donated memberships may be used by new registrants or to provide refunds to existing members.

The request period runs through August 25. Here's how to request assistance.

[*] Con or Bust defines "fan" broadly as "someone who wants to go to an SFF con"; this set does not exclude "is published or wants to be."

Please spread the word!
