FarmerCon to be Virtual again in 2021
As you will probably be aware by now, PulpFest is going ahead as an in-person event. Unfortunately, Meteor House has made the difficult decision not to attend and, therefore, there will be no official FarmerCon in Pittsburgh this year. If some of you do decide to attend we sincerely hope you have a great time and will spend time together in the spirit of FarmerCon.
Whereas it is unfortunate that events outside of our control have meant we can’t all meet up in person, those who attended last year’s virtual FarmerCon will be pleased to know that we, at Meteor House, are planning to hold such an event again this year. Last year’s programming had plenty of pre-recorded content for people to enjoy, plus two very well-attended and fun Zoom hangouts. We plan to do something very similar this year which will allow us to showcase the three very exciting books coming out this year, and give you some insight into the process of their creation. We are also keen to give people the opportunity to discuss them (as well as myriad other Farmer-related topics) via the live Zoom social event.
We haven’t quite settled on the timing for virtual FarmerCon; we’re still working through identifying the best timing so as to coincide with our book releases, but it is likely we will hold the event sometime in the autumn. We’ll share a date as soon as we can.
It’s a shame that for a second year in a row we aren’t able to all be in the same place at the same time, enjoying a meal together, sitting alongside each other in the presentation hall, or even just sharing some cake, but a screen-based catchup, coupled with some exciting pre-recorded programming, will be an enjoyable way to spend a weekend together from wherever we are.
Stay tuned for more information. And stay safe.
