At-Con Newsletter — A Momentary Taste of WisCon

  • contact:  newsletter@wiscon.net

When things change during WisCon — panels are looking for panelists, panelists for another panel change, volunteers are needed in a specific area, and so on — the best way to keep up with things is our at-con newsletter, “A Momentary Taste of WisCon.”

How can you read it?

  • Printed copies of the newsletter are distributed at the Registration/Info Desk on the second floor of the Concourse.
  • Individual articles are posted to our blog and then mirrored under “Announcements” in the WisSched app.
  • PDF copies are archived here on the website.

Progress Reports

  • contact:  publications@wiscon.net

For each convention we send two progress reports via postal mail — one in the autumn and one in the spring.  Progress reports give you quick updates on the most important aspects of WisCon, and just in general let you know that the convention is alive and well.

eCube evolutions

Chris Wallish
SF3 Communications Committee

An early 1990s mimeograph machine, and a sheet of white paper reading "eCube".
This is a legit mimeograph, kids (although used here solely as a prop).

Our monthly (mostly) email newsletter, eCube, is undergoing some transformation.  Much as we’ve loved our typewriters and mimeograph, our photocopiers, our plain text over the years, it’s time to move to something that makes our newsletters a little easier for you to navigate and a bit easier for us to prepare — and that also connects with our website and social media.

As of today, eCube will now be delivered via MailChimp.  If you were already a subscriber, you should have received an email welcoming you to the new service.  If you didn’t receive that email, you can verify your subscription (or subscribe for the first time!) below.

If you’re worried that your eCube may go into your spam folder, add the email sf3communications@sf3.org to your safe sender list.

If you’re a Gmail user, we do want to warn you in advance that Google often routes MailChimp emails to your Promotions tab.  Don’t forget to check for it there if you don’t see it in your inbox!

eCube is still going to come out monthly — and we expect we’ll do twice-a-month newsletters in April and May as we get closer to the convention.  Our email newsletter is a great way to get a handy monthly reminder of all our upcoming deadlines, articles about what’s going on in WisCon planning, and tips on how to make the most of your Memorial Day weekend.

If you have any questions about our transition to MailChimp, you can email me to chat about it: comms_chair@sf3.org
