I’ve been given the go-ahead to announce a piece of delightful news: next year, I will be one of three Guests of Honor at the second annual Sirens Conference in Vail, Colorado. The theme will be “Faeries,” and my fellow GoHs will be Holly Black and <drumroll> Terri Windling.
Hoh. Lee. <faints before she can say the rest>
Sadly, I wasn’t able to attend this year (and my brother ended up scheduling his wedding for that weekend anyway), but judging by various con reports, this sounds like everything I love rolled up into one giant ball of awesome, and then dropped into a gorgeous location. Roundtables and salon-style discussions, a pleasant but not overwhelming degree of academicism, and a topic that’s focused enough to produce really great discussions, while broad enough not to limit things too much. It’s like ICFA plus.
I’m told they’ll have the website updated for next year’s conference on November 1st, so I’ll post a reminder then. In the meantime, the gist is that it will be October 7th-10th, Vail Cascade Resort and Spa, and I hope to see as many of you there as possible. It should be fabulous.
