2022 Nebula Conference To Be Virtual

The Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America events team has announced that their 2022 Nebula Conference will be entirely virtual, with no in-person component. Their email explains that:

for the third year in a row, the Nebula Conference will be held entirely online! Why yes, you can attend from anywhere on Earth (or in the galaxy). The conference will be held May 19–22, 2022.

We had hoped to hold a hybrid conference this year both online and in Los Angeles, but the Board has voted to postpone the in-person component until next year. This is largely because of the continuing challenges and difficulties of managing COVID-19 safety. We have been monitoring the situation throughout the year, and wanted to make sure we could provide the safest possible environment for everyone when we decide to return to in-person events.

Postponing meeting in person has the additional bonus of giving the SFWA Events Team more time to develop standards of excellence for running a hybrid conference, just as we did when delivering the first Nebula Conference Online in 2020.

But enough about next year! Dial your time machines back to the present, where we hope you’ll  join us for another weekend full of panels focused on careers in short and long-format prose, games, comics, and the many expanding categories of professional speculative fiction writers.

Registration will be opening very soon. We look forward to greeting familiar faces and new passengers for the 2022 voyage of the Airship Nebula!
