Announcing Virtual CON.TXT 2021!

Announcing Virtual CON.TXT 2021!

As you know, we had to cancel the 2021 in-person convention we had previously planned due to hotel availability. However, we're excited to announce that we will hold another virtual con next summer instead! That's CON.TXT two years in a row!

CON.TXT 2021 will be held online June 26-27, 2021, with pre-con events on the evening of June 25 (EDT). 

We would usually poll you about con dates, and we're sorry for not doing so this year—we chose this weekend based on our schedules and other scheduled conventions. We hope this date will work for most of you!

Specifics, including details on registration, will be coming in early 2021, but we can share a few preliminary details with you now:

  • Based on your feedback, con panels and activities will be spread out over two days with more breaks throughout
  • There will be a registration fee, with scholarships available. We haven't finalized the price but it is unlikely to be more than $20
  • We're looking into offering some recorded panels (to allow for asynchronous viewing) and improved accessibility features (such as live captioning)
  • Platform decisions have not been finalized, but we expect the modes of interaction to be a mix of text and video/voice

We look forward to seeing you all again next summer! In the meantime, we'll keep you posted here, on Dreamwidth, and on Twitter. You can also join our mailing list to get updates.
