RDSP was involved in Balticon in a big way this year with members being part of more than 20 panels, presentations, readings and other programming. Author and editor John Edward Lawson along with Dog Star Books authors K. Ceres Wright and J.L. Gribble provided their expertise on subjects from small press publishing to alternate history world building and Afrofuturism. Lawson and Wright were also involved in several events aimed at introducing DWASF (Diverse Writers & Artists of Science Fiction) to the Balticon community.
We’re excited to see Balticon reaching out to diverse communities, being actively inclusive and creating a more vibrant con as a result. The steps they are taking now will ensure that Balticon continues to be a well-attended and popular event for the future.
