Should I Do WisCon This Year?


Got a flier from WisCon 36: 25-28 May 2012 at the P.O. Box today. At first I didn't think much of it, then I realized -- I didn't get any classes for summer. I'm free for Memorial Day weekend.

For those of you who don't know, WisCon is the premier feminist SF con, held in Madison WI every Memorial Day weekend. It's a fabulously well-run con and I've been twice. Once in 2004, just before attending Clarion, and 2005 (DW).

Registration is limited to 1000 and the main Madison Concourse Hotel does fill up. So I should jump on this. Why hesitate? Because (a) I'm not teaching this summer so no money and (2) I'm already booked for WorldCon in Chicago at the end of summer. Plus (III) probable travel South this summer.

Anyone want a night owl roommate in the Concourse Hotel?
