July 23, 2020 | By | Reply More

The next world SF con, CoNZealand, has just published the programme guide for their virtual Worldcon.

You can view it over at https://sites.grenadine.co/sites/conzealand/en/conzealand/schedule

CoNZealand’s Kelly Buehler and Norman Cates told SFcrowsnest, “We’re pleased to unveil the initial programme and invite members to take a look and start working out which sessions to attend. With more than 750 events, there will be something for everyone.”

A single login will soon be available to allow members to access the virtual con, sign-in to the CoNZealand Grenadine site and start tailoring their own CoNZealand experience. Members will be able to sign up for programme items, kaffeeklatsche and workshops, and create their own schedule.

Logins are not yet available but an update will be sent out as soon as they are.

Grenadine is also updating the site so that members around the world will be able to view programme items with times from their own timezone.

Significant events like opening and closing ceremonies, Hugo Awards, and the Masquerade will run at 11am NZT, for the maximum convenience of members around the world.

Some workshops require advance preparation and members should read the descriptions for these: “Action Scenes Without Black Belts”, “Worldbuilding – Writers Workshop (Late Night)”, “Geological Worldbuilding “, “Introduction to Computer Animation”, “Creating Compelling Characters in Fantastical Worlds”, “Using History to Build a World for Writing or Playing”.
