Do you have a favorite author whose books you love chatting up to family, friends, and people on the bus? Would you enjoy a weekend of discussions about their work? The chance to have them sign your copies of their books? Consider nominating that author to be a Guest of Honor at WisCon!

Oh yes, we’re still deep in planning for WisCon 40. But planning for WisCon 41 starts now — and even though 2017 seems very far off, we would love for you to submit suggestions for Guests of Honor for WisCon 41.

Nominating is as easy as sending an email to with the person’s name and a few sentences about why you think they’re a good fit for WisCon. What makes someone a good fit? Review our Statement of Principles to get a sense of what WisCon is about. Also check out our list of previous Guests of Honor to see who we’ve invited in the past.

Don’t be shy! Maybe you’ve been a Guest of Honor yourself and now would like to see someone else so honored. Or perhaps you’ve never attended a WisCon, but you know just the person who would be the perfect fit as a Guest of Honor. Everyone is welcome to submit a nomination!

Submissions are open through December 31st.

    1. Hey, Rose! This is a great question, and since we didn’t make it clear in the post I am really glad you asked.

      Nominees do not need to be creators solely of written works. We are glad to consider any author, artist, comic creator, musician, et cetera whose works align with WisCon’s feminist/social justice focus.

      If you have anyone in mind, please drop us an email at! Thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. A note to Heather, who left us a comment with a nomination: Thank you! I’ve forwarded that on to be added to our nominees list.

    A note for all: WisCon’s Guest of Honor nomination process is confidential, so we ask that you send all your suggestions/nominations to us via email:

    Thanks, everyone!
