request assistance November 1-10 (new dates); assistance to be available

Fans of color/non-white fans:

Con or Bust will be accepting requests for assistance to attend upcoming SFF cons from November 1-10, 2017, not November 15-25, as in the past. This is a change to all future request periods, which will all run during the first ten days of the month, every three months (February, May, August, and November).

The following new assistance can be requested at that time:

CON.TXT, July 27-29, 2018, Arlington, VA, USA (@contxt_announce). CON.TXT is a media con, a place for fans to gather and celebrate the joy of fandom, a place where you can indulge in endless conversation about your favorites, debate metaslash topics of great import, and squee, all in the company of like-minded folk.

CON.TXT has donated one membership and one hotel room night to Con or Bust. The recipient must be 18 years of age or older.


Dublin 2019, August 15-19, 2019, Dublin, Ireland (@dublin2019). Dublin 2019 is the first WorldCon in Ireland and the 77th WorldCon (aka not next year, but the year after).

Dublin 2019 has donated twelve memberships.


To learn how to request assistance, see the Request Assistance page. For the most up-to-date list of cons to which assistance is available, see the Upcoming Cons page.

Thanks, and please spread the word!
