Norwescon Goes Virtual

We're Moving Norwescon 43 Online!

Just like you, we miss our Norwescon family. Unfortunately, we don’t expect it will be wise (or legal) for us to gather together in a hotel by early 2021. Rather than risk missing out, we’re taking the convention to a new frontier—online!

Join us on April 1–4, 2021, for Norwescon 43: The Longest Night, from the comfort and safety of your home. We will bring you the things you love about Norwescon—interactive panel discussions, hands- on workshops, scheduled games, meetups, a curated art show, dealers with the latest and greatest in fandom wares, the Norwescon Writers Workshop, Philip K. Dick Awards, and more. We’re planning virtual events to gather, hang out, meet up with old friends, and make new ones while celebrating science fiction and fantasy together. Which is what it's all about!

If you haven’t heard, our guests of honor scheduled for 2020 are all returning. We will be excited to welcome Jacqueline Carey (writer), Sana Takeda (artist), Susan Langley (science), and Tor Books (spotlight publisher). We may even add some special guests to the list, so continue to watch this space!

Moving online allows us to reduce our budget, and we are happy to pass those savings along to our members. Norwescon 43 membership fees will be $35 for adults and $20 for youth ages 13-17. If you already have a membership, we will contact you about your refund options.

Interested in helping us turn virtuality into virtue? There are many new positions that need to be filled this year. Please check out the “Get Involved” tab on our website for open positions and other ways to volunteer.
