I hope everyone had as great a time at WisCon as I did!

I've just finished reading last year's WisCon Chronicles, edited by Nisi Shawl, which is absolutely wonderful and a lot to live up to. Thankfully, WisCon people are amazing.

I spoke to some possible contributors at WisCon and I have plans to write to more, but I would love to hear from you if you are interested in contributing.

This year's theme, 'Futures of Feminism and Fandom,' is intended to focus on the ways that WisCon embodies movements toward a broader and more intersectional understanding of what feminism is and can be, as well as how changes in technology and communication affect our experience of fandom and of feminism. Panel reports, contemplations, and other thoughts (or images!) relating to this are all very welcome. If you have something you want to write about, an event at WisCon that you want to document, or a response to something that's happened online relating to the con, please write to me and/or submit even if it doesn't seem obviously related to the theme.

The initial deadline is August 1 2011. You are more than welcome to submit earlier––perhaps you want to start writing while WisCon is fresh in your memory? Send your submission as a Word or .rtf file to wischronicles @ gmail dot com. Lengths are flexible; aim for 2500 words if you aren't sure.

I'd be happy to hear from anyone who is planning on contributing or wants feedback on how to develop an idea: comment here or write to me at wischronicles @ gmail dot com.
