Event Details

Those of us who read and write speculative fiction have a passion for seeing beyond the every day or around the corner. We dream of alien worlds, peoples, sciences, magic, and miracles.  We imagine ghosts, monsters, and consummate lovers. We’re geeks, outsiders–strangers in a strange land. We have fun playing with possibilities. We are the home of mythic fiction in all its forms.

Coyote Con is a 31 day digital author conference. If you have an interest in any of our topics, you are welcome to attend. There is no cost to attend the con, but registration is required as space is limited. Registration will open on April 21, 2010. The chats will be scheduled each weekend at various times so that at least some sessions will be a good time for your time zone, wherever you are. Word Wars will be held throughout the week, and author Joely Sue Burkhart has organized a MayWriMo writing challenge to run concurrent with the conference.

Our guests are authors, editor, publishers and other industry professionals who love to talk about, and be involved in, the making of books: cross-genre, historical, romance, horror, fantasy, and science fiction, and all the related media they generate.

If there is a place where discussions of  humanity, inclusion, exclusion, diversity, ability, disability, othering, religion, irreligion, feminism, patriarchy, sexuality, colonialism and post-colonial ideas also belong, it is with us. We should always be able to see what’s possible.

Tickets are available for single speaker sessions. Panel sessions are occuring on every weekend day of the month on a first-come, first-served basis. A writing challenge, MayWriMo, has been organized by author Joely Sue Burkhart to run concurrent with the other events, and word wars will occur in the chat room throughout the week.

Guests include: Jim Brown, Joely Sue Burkhart, Nora Fleischer, Rudy Ch. Garcia, Meredith Holmes, J.A. Howe, Gary Inbinder, Heather S. Ingemar, Anna Kashina, Anna Korra’ti, Scott Nicholson, Edward Morris, Tim Mulcahy, John Rosenman, David Sklar, Isabelle Santiago, Fraiser Sherman, Cindy Lynn Speer, Michael F. Stewart, Joselle Vanderhooft, Rachael de Vienne, and Teresa Wymore.

Expected Special Guests include: Darin Bradley, Gary Braunbeck, Anna Black, Kealan Patrick Burke, Kal Cobalt, Lynn Flewelling, Nathalie Gray, Nalo Hopkinson, Victor D. Infante, Monica Jackson, Stephanie Kelsey, Heather Massey, Karen Newman, Scott Nicholson, Carole McDonnell, Seanan McGuire, KL Richardsson, Lucy Snyder, and Caroline Stevermer.
