CON.TXT is a media con: a place for fans to gather and celebrate fandom in the company of like-minded folk, a place where you can indulge in endless conversation about your favorites, debate topics of great import (for example, what would demons do for self-care?), watch vidshows about your favorite characters, and squee.

CON.TXT is also a space for fans to share and learn tips and tricks for using technology to create, organize, and access fanworks of all kinds, including art, crafts, fic, gifs, meta, podfic, and vids.

But mostly, CON.TXT is an accessible and welcoming place for fans, where you can relax and recharge in the company of old and new friends, as well as friends-to-be. Whether you're an MCU monofan or a fannish butterfly who spent the weekend mainlining The Untamed, a Good Omens newbie or a Star Trek old-timer, a craftsperson or a window-shopper, you are invited to talk, listen, hang out, dance, play games, and enjoy.

CON.TXT 2021 will be held again at the Residence Inn Arlington Pentagon City in the exciting Pentagon City neighborhood of Arlington, Va., just across the river from Washington, D.C. Dates and room rates will be announced soon. Reservations made for 2020 have been rolled over to the equivalent 2021 dates.
