4th Street Fantasy 2022 approaches!
4th Street Fantasy will hold an in-person convention at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Minneapolis (our usual locale!) on June 17-19, 2022. We are planning a full slate of in-person programming, as well as a workshop/seminar on Friday June 17th. We can’t wait to see everyone!
We take COVID safety very seriously. Our COVID Safety and Policy information is here.
You can find hotel information available here.
Check out our draft programming for 2022 over here.
We will also be offering a Seminar/Workshop hosted by C.L. Polk, Arkady Martine, Elizabeth Bear, and Scott Lynch that offers an unparalleled opportunity for writers seeking professional development.
The theme of this year’s Seminar and Workshop is ‘Writing as Practice’ – writing as habit, as experiment, as training, as something that a writer continuously approaches. Our panel of award-winning, best-selling, and internationally-published authors will help you conceptualize the ‘practice’ of writing, building (or abandoning) habits, integrating writing into the complex and demanding pressures of being in the world (dayjobs, health issues, a global pandemic…) and how to get back on the horse, even if the horse has run off to pastures unknown.
This year we are also offering a supporting membership option for people who cannot come to the con. This low-cost remote option will give you access to the 4th Street Member Discord for socializing, and where as many panels as possible will be liveblogged. We will also have sheets available at the convention where attendees can leave written greetings for supporting members: these greetings will be mailed to each supporting member after the con.
