How was GRNW 2016 for you? Plus GeekGirlCon and a Podcast Shout-Out!

Hey, everyone! THANK YOU to everyone who helped make GRNW 2016 a success last month! It was an amazing weekend with fun readings, great meetings, cool swag, new books, awesome discussions, and more, and it was made all the better with the wonderful community that came together for it!

How was your experience? Please share with us your thoughts in our short anonymous survey. We’d really like to hear what you liked this year, and what you’d like to see next time.

Take GRNW 2016 Attendee Survey


Thank you from the attending GRNW 2016 authors and speakers!

What about next time?
We’re looking at GRNW 2017 to be held November 3-4, 2017 in Seattle. We hope you can join us! Like this year, we’ll be opening up to panel submissions again later in 2016/early 2017. Start pondering panels!

Will it be called GRNW? Nope. We are changing our name to one that will be more inclusive of the full LGBTQIA spectrum and bright vibrancy that is queer romance. What should that name be? We don’t know yet, but we’re taking suggestions! Feel free to share yours in the comments. 🙂 We’ll eventually be pulling them together for a vote.

Where will GRNW be next?


Great question! We’ll actually be at this weekend’s GeekGirlCon, that’s October 8-9 at Seattle’s Conference Center in downtown Seattle. We are part of a panel discussion queer sci-fi and fantasy with an awesome crew of authors!

Out of this World! Exploring the Awesomeness of LGBTQIA Sci-Fi & Fantasy
Time: 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM
Location: Korra

Join us for an out-and-proud and out-of-this-world discussion with sci-fi/fantasy authors as we explore the wonderfully queer realms of LGBTQIA representation in speculative fiction, as well as the various intersections found within, from race to gender identity, sexuality to ability. Magic, and potentially mayhem, may also ensue.

Panelists: Astrid Amara, Evan J. Peterson, Laylah Hunter, Matthew Buscemi, Nisi Shawl, and moderator Tracy Timmons-Gray

If you are attending GGC, we hope you can join us!
