FanWorks 2023: October 6th - 8th, Online


This is a long delayed update on FanWorks 2023 – our apologies! We didn't intend to leave the con's status a mystery for so long, but life has been very exciting for con staff.

We'll go into some detail here about what's been going on since the last con and what will be happening this year. The key information is:

  • The next FanWorks con will be fully virtual October 6th – 8th, 2023.

  • The October virtual con will be free to attend, with optional donations to help us cover operating costs.

  • There will be no in-person FanWorks con this year.

  • Returning to annual in-person cons remains a priority for us. We're focusing on getting back in-person next year, but at this point we can't guarantee that will happen.

FanWorks 2022 Wrap-Up

Hello, everyone!

First, a note on this and future updates: we're going to be moving away from Dreamwidth a bit. The primary home of announcements, updates, info posts etc. will be here on the FanWorks blog, to keep as much information centralized on the con website as possible.

Announcements will be linked on Dreamwidth (rather than fully mirrored); planning posts requiring discussion (like panel brainstorming) will likely be kept on Dreamwidth for now. The easiest way to ensure that you have the latest updates is to follow us on twitter @fanworkscon, which will link to blog updates / announcements.

On another housekeeping note, exit surveys are now out to all Chicago and online attendees; if you didn't get an exit survey link to your registered email address, email us at and we'll get a survey to you.

(We'll start looking at survey responses this weekend, but we'll continue to check in on them at least through September, so there's plenty of time to respond!)

We're going to take this wrap-up post in three stages:

  • A look back at the con planning process for 2022, aka "how we got here"
  • A brief overview of the weekend, including things we think worked well and things we are already planning on tweaking for next year
  • A look ahead at where we're at in con planning for 2023, and what you can expect from us next year
