QuaranCon2022 7th–11th April 2022

The SFF Convention for Staying the F at Home Yet Again

QuaranCon2022 is Here

After months of planning from a handful of dedicated volunteers, in particular Virginia McClain and Noor Al-Shanti, QuaranCon2022 is finally here. Running 7th–11th April, our amazing convention is offering a host of panels, workshops and readings from authors, publishers and bloggers across the SFF spectrum. You can view the full programme here: QuaranCon2022 Programme

It’s 100% free to watch and anything you miss will be available on the YouTube channel. If you want to ask questions of your favourite authors, I highly recommend setting a reminder and being there in person.

The beautiful Virginia McClain and I will be kicking things off at 4pm (BST) on Thursday 7th April, which you can watch here. There’s a tonne of great content for your viewing pleasure, but I’m especially excited about the two panels I’m moderating. I’m so lucky to have the opportunity to chat about my favourite topics with some incredibly talented authors.

True Villainy, Friday 8th April at 9:30pm BST ~View~

Villains are people (sometimes) too, so they’re as complex and diverse as we are. Nothing ruins a good story like a baddie who falls foul of realism. Love them, hate them, or want to be them, we’re discussing how to write believable, three-dimensional antagonists.

Swearing in SFF, Sunday 10th April at 9pm BST ~View~

Love it or hate it, swearing forms a part of the modern vernacular. Join our panel as they discuss their thoughts on swearing and how it’s incorporated into SFF worlds. You might even learn some new vocabulary. *Viewer discretion is advised.

I’ll also have the pleasure of presenting the QuaranCon Awards Ceremony with my good friend, Amanda Justice, announcing the winners of the Short Fiction and Best Worst Lines contests. And, yes, the goats are back to eat that pontificating, purple prose.

I hope you’ll join us for as many events as humanly possible and take the opportunity to grow that TBR pile by checking out the QuaranCon Book Sale. Please remember that QuaranCon is entirely funded and run by volunteers, often at a loss. If you feel like being generous, consider buying us a ko-fi.

See you all from 7th–11th April for all things SFF!
