Were you one of the lucky passengers that got to experience SFWA’s first virtual convention? Did you miss out only to scroll through social media and wish you had attended?
We have some exciting news!
The SFWA Airship Nebula will be returning in June 2021, and we’d love if you could join us. Due to the ongoing pandemic and in the interests of safety of all our attendees, members, staff and their families, we have decided to plan another fully virtual event. We completely understand that this news may be bittersweet. Many of us miss seeing our friends and colleagues in person. We do hope to once again host a hybrid event should the situation improve in the future.
For now though, we’d love if you could embark on another journey in our truly fantastic virtual airship. The best thing about an all-online conference is that you can join from anywhere in the universe!
Captaining the ship this year, SFWA is also very pleased to announce that L.D. Lewis is joining the Nebula Conference team.
Lewis is an award-winning SF/F writer and editor, and serves as a founding creator, Art Director, and Project Manager for the World Fantasy Award-winning and Hugo Award-nominated FIYAH Literary Magazine. She primarily writes stories of ordinary Black women and femmes with extraordinary powers in equally extraordinary worlds.
Coming off the success of helming FIYAHCON last month, L.D. will be acting as the project manager for all of the exciting year-round events associated with the Nebula Conference. We hope you join us in welcoming L.D. aboard.
With smaller events leading up to our main conference, the team is working on elevating our content and offerings again this year, and celebrating the best that science fiction and fantasy have to offer with our annual Nebula Awards ceremony.
So, please join us for another weekend full of professional development, workshops, and opportunities to network in one of the coolest virtual spaces there is. There will be more dance parties, karaoke, and social meet-ups around special interests. We’ll also be bringing back our conference-specific mentorship program and office hours.
We had it all last year, and we’ll be doing it all again in 2021.
Dates: June 4th – 6th, 2021
Where: Entirely Online
We’ll be announcing so many great things in the coming months and we hope you’ll join us for what will be another amazing weekend among the stars.
Important Note: If you are registering for the 2021 Nebula Conference Online only, you will not have access to the remaining 2020 events.
