Tomorrow morning I’m catching a flight to Madison for the 31st WisCon. WisCon may no longer be the only convention focusing on feminist science fiction, but it’s still the mother of them all, and it’s going to be an impressive turnout of authors and fans. The Guests of Honor this year are Kelly Link and Laurie J. Marks, and the convention will once again be hosting the awards ceremony for the James Tiptree, Jr. Award. Fun!
The only somewhat worrying element is that — eep! — I’m one of the hosts of a wiki workshop during the convention (along with the super cool and far more experienced Laura Quilter and Liz Henry). I’ve never participated in convention programming before, so I’m a little nervous. But — I tell myself — given the competition, it will probably be sparsely attended. And even if not… it’ll be FINE!
More updates later, maybe even from the hotel itself (I’m taking a work laptop with me).
