Fans of color/non-white fans interested in SFF and SFF cons, I have three new con membership donations to announce. Available now:

  • Dysprosium, 3-6 April 2015, Heathrow, UK. Dysprosium is the 2015 Eastercon; its Guests of Honor are Jim Butcher, Seanan McGuire, Herr Döktor, and Caroline Mullan.

    Dysprosium has donated two memberships to Con or Bust, of which one remains. ETA: in what has to be a speed record, this membership has now been claimed.

Available in the Feb. 15-25 assistance request period:

  • JOFCon MSP, October 9-11, 2015, Minneapolis, MN, USA. JOFs are Journeymen of Fandom, including Journeywomen, Journeypersons, Journeybots, Journeyfolk, Journeyfen, Journeyworkers, & Journeyplatypi. All are welcome, so long as they’re interested in learning more about fanac (“fannish activities”).

    JOFCon has donated two memberships to Con or Bust.

  • Wincon, October 15-18, 2015, Pittsburgh, PA, USA. Wincon’s mission is to bring together a diverse group of internet-based media fans in an inclusive environment to engage in fannish activities and foster meaningful connections. We aim to provide programming created and led by attendees, on topics drawn from a variety of sources and involving everything from detailed meta to wildly creative fanworks, encompassing all aspects of fandom culture.

    Wincon has donated ten memberships to Con or Bust.
