FIYAHCON is a virtual convention centering the perspectives and celebrating the contributions of BIPOC in speculative fiction.
The event is hosted by FIYAH Literary Magazine and carries a variety of entertaining and educational content surrounding the business, craft, and community of speculative literature. The inaugural event took place in October of 2020 to great acclaim, and we look forward to doing it all again this year!
