Last call for free Nine Worlds memberships; plus child memberships to Loncon 3

Originally published at Con or Bust by Kate Nepveu. Please comment there ( comment(s)).

Fans of color/non-white fans: there are still five donated memberships available to Nine Worlds Convention (8-10 August 2014, London, England, UK). These must be claimed by August 1st—that’s tomorrow—so get them now!

Also, there is still an abundance of free memberships to Loncon 3 (August 14-18, 2014, London, England, UK), this year’s Worldcon. These can be claimed even while the con’s in progress! But also available now are two child memberships, for attendees aged between 6 and 15 years on 14 August 2014, thanks to an individual donor. There’s a track of really great workshops for kids and a programming track specifically about Young Adult fiction, so if you are between 6 and 15 years old, or your friends or family include someone who is, this is a great opportunity.

Finally, two memberships are still available to Shamrokon (22-24 August 2014, Dublin, Ireland), this year’s Eurocon.

Claim these through the Request Assistance page, and please spread the word!
