And do you know who ELSE gives a percentage of T-shirt sales back to the community? WOMEN AND WORDS, that’s who! Some of the proceeds from Women and Words T-shirts go to the Golden Crown Literary Society. GO SEE.


Don’t forget! The GCLS 2017 conference is in Chicago this year (July), and hotel rooms are already available and they will go soon.


And speaking of fundraising for the GCLS, don’t forget that Bella Books is putting together an anthology with proceeds going to the GCLS general fund. The theme is “I was a con virgin…” and then go cray-cray with that. Deadline is 1 February 2017. HERE ARE THE DETAILS.


Back to fangirling, coming in March, 2017, is the inaugural CLEXACON! That’s right, a con named in honor of the Clexa ship from The 100, and it’s all about queer women in media and representation. It’s in Las Vegas, and features queer women  producers, directors, and actresses, including Katherine Barrell of Wynonna Earp fame (half of the WayHaught ship) and Shamin Sharif and Alice Wu among so many awesome others! Plus panel discussions and workshops and vendors and artists and…omg. I can’t even…

Jove would also like everyone to know about LootCrate, which is a monthly box of mystery fandom goodies for fans, gamers, nerds, n’ geeks. So if you’re interested, HERE.
