Let’s Turn Lemons into Lemonade – Boskone 58 is going Virtual!

For the first time ever, you don’t need to fear Snomageddon. This year, we are bringing Boskone to you!

Boskone 58 will be held online as a virtual convention on February 12-14, 2021. This means that anyone, anywhere can attend! While we wish we could meet in-person, since we love these fannish gatherings with you, we must think of the health and well-being of our community. We hope you are able to join us online for a fantastic virtual event in the comfort of your home.

Memberships for virtual Boskone 58 are $25 per person and are now available online. We have decided to shift all previously purchased or earned rollover memberships to Boskone 59 (with the exception of Life Members and former Guests) since the price of the Boskone 58 virtual convention membership is so much lower than for an in-person membership. If you have a question about your membership or would like to ask about alternate arrangements, please contact Boskone Registration at registration@boskone.org.

GUESTS:
Boskone 58 will be a three-day virtual convention (held online), starting in the afternoon on Friday, February 12 at 5:00 pm (U.S. Eastern Standard Time) and running through Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately, Tamsyn Muir is not able to join us virtually this year as our guest. However, all of our other guests are able to join us online for a fantastic virtual Boskone. We are delighted to welcome our guests to Boskone 58:

  • Joe Abercrombie – Guest of Honor
  • Julie Dillon – Official Artist
  • Sheree Renée Thomas – Special Guest
  • Marc Gunn – Musical Guest
  • Ursula Vernon – NESFA Press Guest
  • Mike Brotherton & Christian Ready – Hal Clement Science Speaker

PROGRAM:
Programming will feature the full range of activities and a wide selection of program participants. This past August, NESFA hosted its inaugural virtual convention reCONvene, which has inspired the Boskone 58 program and helped us to learn how we can take advantage of the new opportunities that a virtual environment provides. We welcome your program ideas and if you would like to be considered for a spot on the Boskone 58 virtual program, please contact our Program Team at program@boskone.org.

VOLUNTEER:
We are also looking for volunteers who are comfortable working in an online environment. Roles include helping to staff virtual program rooms as well as helping with virtual logistics, marketing, program development, data entry, communications, and more. If you are interested, please fill in our Volunteer Form for virtual Boskone 58 and we will get back to you.

REGISTER:
We appreciate your support, admire your imaginations, and welcome your company as we come together in cyberspace this February. Purchase your membership for the virtual Boskone 58 today, and we will see you there!
