ahorbinski: a bridge in the fog (bridge to anywhere)
I’m sorry to say that my co-chair s.e. smith and I have resigned as Wiscon 40 chairs and as members of the Wiscon concom, effective immediately. This is a really unfortunate decision to have had to make, and we very much regret placing the con in this position. That said, it seems clear that we are a poor culture fit for the concom, and we feel the need to prioritize self-care rather than further risk our own mental health and well-being. Another reason we are leaving now rather than later is that at this juncture there is still potentially time to find replacement chairs to bring Wiscon 40 to fruition.

We really appreciated the opportunity to work on Wiscon, and we wish the convention all the best.

Well, the cat's out of the bag; my friend s.e. smith and I are co-chairing Wiscon 40 in 2016, the 40th iteration of the world's leading science fiction convention held in Madison, WI every Memorial Day weekend.

We'd love to see you there, but in the meantime, we're looking for your nominations for Guests of Honor, as well as general ideas and suggestions, before 5 January 2015.
