It’s con season! All this talk of writing conventions is making me super excited for my first writing con, World Fantasy Con 2013 at the end of October. But I’m still thinking ahead, and hoping to grab some early bird tickets for an even more con-filled 2014. So, I’m dropping by the blog today to ask — what cons are you going to this year? Next year? I put out a shout on Twitter earlier for UK con recs, and got some excellent suggestions! I love that a few of them are outside of London as well, since London’s not my favourite place to try and travel around(/afford). I’ve got a feeling 2014 will involve trips to these well-recommend cons:
- Eastercon in Glasgow (Satellite 4) (current Early Bird pricing ends 04/04/2014)
Price: £65 until 04/04/2014 Date: 18th – 21st April
- Worldcon in London (Loncon 2014)
Price: £65 young adult early bird pricing ends Sept Date: Thursday 14th to Monday 18th August 2014
- Fantasycon 2014 in York
Price: £40 until 01/01/2014. Date: September 5th – 7th 2014
- UKYA Con, if details are announced in time. Date and location currently unknown.
- Bristolcon 2014 in Bristol
Price: seem to be a permanent dirt cheap £20 Date: October 26th again, maybe?
Nine Worlds Con in London, if I can afford it, which is looking unlikely.
Price: £75 as of writing Date: August 9th-11thRuled out as I can only afford so many cons in 2014. Sorry, 9Worlds.
Hi-Ex 2014 in Inverness, if it happensBeen told this isn’t due to happen in 2014.
