The second year of Sirens, a conference about women in fantasy (as readers, writers, and characters), was absolutely fantastic. Guests Marie Brennan, Holly Black, and Terri Windling, along with other presenters and attendees, gathered in Vail to discuss faeries, to share favorite books, and to focus on women in fantasy literature.
Sirens in 2011 will again be held in Vail, and we'd love to see you there from October 6-9. Guests of honor Justine Larbalestier, Nnedi Okorafor, and Laini Taylor will join us to discuss monsters and the monstrous. Programming proposals will be accepted until May 7, 2011, and papers, panels, workshops, roundtable discussions, and afternoon classes that focus on theme or on fantasy books by or about women are welcome.
