Get ready for three-point-five days of dynamic, entertaining content with BIPOC at the center of speculative literature discourse! The event takes place September 16-19, 2021 and includes panels, presentations, games, office hours, write-ins, workshops, kickbacks, and more. See the tentative weekend plans below.
Weekend Registration includes BonFIYAH (formerly “Fringe”) access, so no need to purchase both!
REMINDER: Your ticket is not transferrable. It creates a headache for administrative staff. We like our staff. Should you end up being unable to attend the convention, you may:
A: keep your ticket to retain access to the archives.
B: seek a refund (before September 16th). What you do with that money once you get it back (pocket it, donate to the Ticket Fund, grab lunch, purchase a dragon, etc.) is entirely up to you.
We’re telling you now so we don’t have to tell you later.
FIYAHCON 2021 kicks off with the opening ceremonies at 7pm ET on Thursday and the opening of our social spaces and Artist Alley. There is no formal programming slated for Thursday so as not to interfere with the celebration of Yom Kippur. We’re just getting you in the door and addressing all your orientation needs.
Formal weekend programming begins with a two-hour write-in on Friday morning, followed by two tracks of panels, presentations, and keynotes, a round of Em-Dash, and an evening write-in leading into our first BonFIYAH (formerly “Fringe”) night: 12 hours of programming centering our guests in eastern hemisphere and global south time zones.
We kick the day off with another write-in for the morning crowd, more panels and such, the Ignyte Awards Ceremony at 4pm ET, still more panels, and a second night of BonFIYAH.
Join us for a virtual brunch ahead of the last day of programming, the final game of the Em-Dash tournament, a final evening write-in, and the closing ceremonies at 8pm ET.
