BayCon is a major SF bay area general science fiction and fantasy convention with something for everyone. I really enjoy participating in the convention programming and having a chance to see friends. This year's guests of honor are Tamora Pierce, Margaret Organ-Kean, and Christopher J. Garcia.
A gathering to share work by queer authors. Bring your own or bring a favorite from someone else. Share a short work, an excerpt, a song or a poem. If Fandom is a Patchwork, we are nothing without the QUILTBAG.
(This is a hosted open reading session.)
