Both large and small conventions attended by Northwest science fiction and fantasy publishers and authors are moving online or postponing their remaining 2020 and early 2021 dates. Here’s the latest round-up of scheduled changes. Writers hoping to present at these conventions as well as publishers hoping to sell in dealer’s rooms should check websites often for updates.
The largest Seattle area convention announced earlier this month that they would not try to hold an in-person convention in 2021. Previously they had postponed their April 2020 convention to April 2021. Now they are planning for an online event, April 1-4, 2021.
The Portland convention will hold OR-eCon, a free virtual mini-con, Nov. 12-14, 2020. The larger physical convention has been pushed back to Nov. 13-15, 2021, at the Red Lion Hotel, Jantzen Beach. The theme will be “Pun and Parody in Science Fiction.”
This science fiction and fantasy convention has rescheduled their Sept. 11-13, 2020, convention to Sept. 24-26, 2021, at the Bellevue Hilton.
The Spokane convention has postponed their event to Oct. 29-31, 2021, at the Historic Davenport Hotel.
