SFWA to Hold Nebula Conference Online Year-Round
The SFWA will expand the Nebula Conference Online into a year-round virtual extension of the yearly Nebula Conference, effective immediately. The conference will focus on content relevant to professionals in the genre, and all attendees will have access to the recorded 2020 career management, professional development, and expert knowledge panels through April 2021. In addition, the conference will include "interactive weekly writing dates, a reading series, mentoring sessions, live Q&As, workshops, access to the Slack community, and virtual room parties." Attendees do not need to be members of SFWA to participate.
In addition, the SFWA will donate 100% of registration fees for the 2020 Nebula Convention Online content during the month of June to the Carl Brandon Society and the Black Speculative Fiction Society in support of Black Lives Matter. The organization has also created a matching program for the 2020 Nebula Convention Online, so that each registration purchased in June creates a seat for a Black writer. Black writers interested in free registration are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions on how to register.
