Concourse Hotel, Madison WI
WisCon is a 1,000-member science fiction convention with a feminist/social justice focus. Every year the participants celebrate, dissect, and transform speculative literature, television, film, comics, and games. The convention specifically aims to foster conversations about feminism(s), gender, race, disability, and class.
The Post-Apocalyptic Writers’ Society (PAWS) is a virtual critique group. Our short fiction has been published in Shimmer, Nightmare, Interfictions, Interzone, Black Static, The Dark, and many other venues. Members have published with presses such as PS Publishing and Journalstone, obtained MFAs, edited magazines, and have attended workshops such as the Clarion Writers Workshop and the Odyssey Writing Workshop. As a group our fiction encompasses horror, slipstream, fantasy and science fiction, but no matter the specific genre, the stories are always rooted in the dark and the literary with a strong, feminist sensibility. As a group that spans a number of time zones, WisCon is a rare opportunity for some members to read together.
