Writing Contest

Josh Simpson, our Artist GOH has generously donated prizes for a writing contest. There will be one of Josh’s larger spheres, an inhabited world full of fascinating things at the art show. What lives in that planet? What are the stories you can tell about the inhabitants?

Writing Workshops at Arisia

[time corrected on #1]

This year, we’re delighted to offer two writing workshops, open to all (no writing submission required to attend) but with limited signup. Sign-up before the convention is highly recommended.

Registration Reminders and Announcements

Happy Holidays Arisians!

As the convention approaches, just 16 days away now, please consider pre-registering for the convention. Your check-in process goes a lot faster if all you have to do is check in and pick up your badge, versus filling out the registration form, paying, and getting everything processed. If you pre-register on or before December 31st, the rate is only $50 for a Full, Fast Track, or "Turtle Track" (Babysitting) membership, vs the $60 at-the-door rate. We will have day memberships available at the door.

Overflow Hotel

Contrary to everyone's expectations, it looks as though we will sell out of guest rooms at the Westin Waterfront, so Arisia has signed a contract with the Doubletree Hotel Boston - Downtown as this year's overflow hotel. We hope to find rooms for most of the people on the waiting list, but unfortunately we can't accommodate everyone, and there are no double rooms left in the Westin at all. If you would more information about the overflow hotel, please visit
