Started the planning for next year's events: Worldcon in Helsinki is definite, barring some event preventing it. I'm thinking I'm due for Golden Crown Literary (lesbian fiction conference), seeing as it's in Chicago and I haven't been for a couple of years. I'd like to go to World Fantasy in San Antonio because Martha Wells is Toastmaster and is awesome. I I'm probably not going to do a ton of local cons this year, due to a combination of burnout and some not-great-to-bad experiences in the last year. But bar conning is an option.

If time and money are no obstacles (hah!), I'd love to fit in Sirens in Denver, and depending on dates, Outwrite (new LGBTQ writers conference) in D.C. The latter because I could also fit in a visit to the new African American History Museum! 

What events are you folks going to in 2017?

EDITED: I had originally included Madison area convention, Odyssey Con, on my list of possibilities for next year. I have just learned that the con com has decided to make serial sexual harasser Jim Frenkel their Guest Liason for 2017. There are also several other people on the con com who might best be termed "controversial" (like the dude who was very outspoken against POC Safer Space at WisCon within recent memory) so I would advise caution if you're thinking of attending.

On the bright side, WisCon is now back on the possible list.
