FOGcon 5, coming in March!
FOGcon 5 is coming up soon! My favorite SF Bay Area science fiction and fantasy convention returns with honored guests Kim Stanley Robinson and Catherynne M. Valente. Memberships are available online (prices go up tomorrow!) or at the door.

We have readings! We have discussions! We have a fabulous consuite! We have child care, a commitment to accessibility, and a wonderful writing workshop.

Have you ever wanted to be on a panel? Have you ever wanted to moderate a panel? Have you ever thought, "Boy, I wish they'd asked me which panels I wanted to attend before they put this schedule together"? Now is your chance! Come tell the FOGcon programming team what you want to see and what you want to participate in.

If you are a high school or college student, enter the student writing contest by January 15th for a chance to win a free membership.

FOGcon 5. Walnut Creek. March 6-8, 2015. Join us! It'll be fun!

Ooh. I like the idea of a student writing contest. I remember being in high school and college and wanting to go to cons and barely being able to afford membership. This seems like a great idea to get more high school and college students to cons!

I think FOGcon does a really good job appealing to a number of demographics that don't typically attend a lot of cons. Advertising to those demographics... we are less good at. But the folks who do hear about it have a good time!

Thanks for the poke, hotel reservation made. Yay!!

Yay for hotel rooms!

Also: looked at panels. Volunteered for a few. Sarah--they have some interesting travel ones.

Err, I posted this here specifically to say, thanks for the pokes! And then I forgot that bit. I'm so clever.
