Advertise with Worldcon 76

Worldcon 76 will be held in San Jose, CA from August 16-20, 2018. Worldcon, aka the World Science Fiction Convention, is the annual international gathering of science fiction and fantasy fans, writers, artists, musicians and other creators. First held in New York City in 1939, Worldcon now attracts 3,000–10,000 members each year. It is currently on track to host over 6000 attending members, making it one of the largest US-hosted Worldcons in 20 years.

In addition to fans, Worldcon is attended by professionals, including writers, artists, publishers, agents, journalists, and literary critics. Besides our Guests of Honor we expect more than 100 professional writers to attend our convention.

Members of Worldcon 76 receive a number of publications (please see the list), most of which will be presented to members on arrival at the convention, and some of which are also, or exclusively, published online. These publications are an excellent opportunity to reach an audience of highly committed and well connected science fiction and fantasy fans – an international grouping with interests across literature, science and culture.
