I think many people in my networks have already heard about KudosCon, a new convention celebrating fanworks and fan creators. KudosCon will be held in Bloomington, Minnesota (aka Mall of America Town) from January 3-5, 2013. But, as a new con, KudosCon needs money to happen, so they are funding the con through Kickstarter. There are multiple levels of support available, from joint memberships that you can split to plush plotbunnies that you can cuddle to artists' alley tables and more. Even if you can't attend the con, supporting the con at the lurker level ($5 or more) can help ensure that the con happens for other people.

I know a lot of people who are thinking of going, and I've also seen a lot of people asking if anyone knows anything about the people running the con. I actually do know two of the people who are running it, Lee and Lisa--I have known them for about five years now, since we first met at Schoolgirls and Mobilesuits in Minneapolis. We've continued to run into each other at SGMS and at Wiscon since then, and Lisa and I were actually on an anime and manga panel together at Wiscon at one point. They are married and they have a webcomic, Godseeker, and as far as I know they are pretty cool.

So, I hope to see you at KudosCon! Yes, it will be cold outside, but the love of fanworks will fill our hearts and keep us warm.

I am considering attending this convention, but it concerns me that there is no accessibility information posted.

Thank you for the reminder that I need to actually go Kickstart this. I am definitely planning to go, since I have a work conference the same week in Minneapolis (though splitting my time during the overlap is going to be...exciting). It will be great to see you and other people there!
