StabbyCon (2022)

39 39 people viewed this event.

StabbyCon starts January 31st

Hello, and get ready for our first Stabbycon! As we announced late last year, we’re excited to be launching our 2022 Stabbycon, which we hope will be a regular feature on r/fantasy. We realize this is taking place a little later than we had originally announced, but we wanted to make sure we could put on the best event possible.

Our vision for StabbyCon is to celebrate what makes r/Fantasy and the speculative media community so great, and to bring a diverse group of creators into the spotlight through a series of virtual panels, roundtables and AMAs. We hope you’ll enjoy the range of events we’ve got scheduled, and help give a warm r/Fantasy welcome to all of our StabbyCon participants.


To accommodate various time zones, each event will start at a scheduled time but will run throughout the day to allow all of our panelists and as many of you as possible a chance to participate. Even if you miss the start of an event, we’d love as many people to drop in as possible.

We will also update this post through Stabbycon so that you can check back in on anything you may have missed. You can also browse the Stabbycon collection to see all of our events.

We’ll also be running daily social threads so you can drop in and chat about each of our events, or anything else SFF related. Our regularly scheduled posts will also continue as per normal throughout the StabbyCon period.

Toss a coin to your convention!

Fundraising for the Stabby Awards is ongoing. 100% of the proceeds go to the Stabby Awards, allowing us to purchase the shiniest of daggers and ship them around the world to the winners. Additionally, if our fundraising exceeds our goals, then we’ll be able to offer panelists an honorarium for joining us at StabbyCon. We also have special flairs this year, check out the info here.
