Norwescon, I guess


In 2009 at the beginning of December, I received an invitation to Norwescon. For whatever reason, my response to them wasn’t received and it’s very likely that was my fault. I interpreted the lack of response as a “Never mind,” and by the time it was straightened out I had family plans and couldn’t attend. Next year, I told myself.

Well, next year is here. I sent an email to the same person (at the same address) who contacted me before, inquiring about attending the convention, but so far I’ve received no response (again). It wasn’t one of these official contact addresses, though; it’s someone’s personal email address.

I plan to try one more time, but I’m not sure which of these addresses I should use. To be clear, I’ve attended the San Diego Comic-Con but I’ve never been to a “real” science fiction convention, and everything I know about how they work has come from skimming other people’s LiveJournals. So I’m turning to you good folks, because I know many people reading this have much more experience than I do: Which address, if any, should I contact? Or should I just take the hint?


Added later: Email sent! Thank you, everyone on my blog and LJ for the advice.

  1. Hi there! I’m the photographer and social media guy for Norwescon, and this post popped up in my saved Google search for “norwescon”.

    The best address to use would probably be either the chair ( or the generic (perhaps cc: to both to be sure). That should get your message shuffled off to whomever would be best equipped to answer.

    I’ll also toss a link to this post into our internal discussion group to make sure other people see your post. Hopefully we can get all the pieces to fall into place this year!
