The final schedule for WorldCon arrived in my inbox today, and I will be there. Originally, before the pandemic, this Con was to take place in New Zealand and I was wrangling my life-schedule, trying to make it possible for me to attend. As it is, it’s all happening online.
My schedule right now includes a reading, a kaffee klatsch (an online chat / get-together), and I will be on two panels.
I’m very excited about this and rather nervous too, but mostly just sort of floored that I will actually be a part of this event. It takes place July 29 to August 2, New Zealand time.
Worldcon is the annual convention of the World Science Fiction Society (WSFS). It was first held in 1939 and, after a hiatus during WWII, has been held continuously since 1946. The sites of future Worldcons are decided by WSFS members via a bidding process.
The currently selected Worldcons are shown below. Each Worldcon is an independent organization. Worldcons sell “memberships,” not “tickets.” To attend a Worldcon, you must purchase an attending membership from that Worldcon. To join a Worldcon, contact the individual Worldcon directly.
