JordanCon 8 (2016) will take place at the Atlanta Marriott at Perimeter Center in Atlanta, Georgia. If you want to stay in the host hotel, the link to purchase a room in our room block is available on our Location & Travel page. The convention rate is just $95 a night plus taxes and fees.
As you may have heard, two of our volunteers, Jim and Julia Moore had their car stolen over the weekend. Leia Barrett Durham Powell has started a collection to help them out. If you would like to chip in a couple bucks, here's the link. http://www.gofundme.com/sggrn8g
We were told there was a group vandalizing vehicles in that neighborhood on the Sunday of the convention. A couple more con-goers' cars were broken into with items taken.
All Pre-registrations are closed as we organize and print reports.
The two panels that require pre-registration are locked in and live (as well as their pre-reg page)
Writer's Workshop - It's set up to allow an extra 10 submissions in case of absentees
Mask Making - We lengthened this to a "2 hour" panel ... which with the 30 minute breaks between panels means you've got about 3 hours, really.
JordanCon is trying something new this year. We've got a really great Author Guest of Honor, Saladin Ahmed, with a really great book that we love. So we're going to host a book club style read of Throne of the Crescent Moon, the Hugo nominated first novel in the Crescent Moon Kingdoms trilogy. Each week, Tiffany Franklin, the director of our Fantasy literature track will read two chapters of the book and post her thoughts in a dedicated blog on this site. We've set up a Facebook Group for comments and discussion.
