About Smofcons

Friday, December 2-Sunday, December 4, 2016

It’s a convention for those of us who run conventions, particularly ones that have to do with science fiction and fantasy. We get together and talk about convention running (known as “smoffing”), have workshops to learn how to run them better, trade stories (you know, the ones that are funny now), and enjoy good food and drink in the consuite.

The convention you work on can be large or small. It can be a local or a regional convention or it can be one that travels around from town to town, such as Worldcon. It can be one that is vied for by multiple groups, or it can be one that you have to drag someone into chairing kicking and screaming. Is your convention’s focus on science fiction and fantasy literature? Media? Anime? Gaming? Furry? Comics? All of the above? Is Smofcon for you? Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes. Smofcon is where you will find your people!
