Building Black Inclusive Worlds
This event is free and will be live-streamed on our YouTube channel.
FIYAHCON is a virtual convention hosted by FIYAH Literary Magazine. The inaugural event takes place October 17-18, 2020, and will host a variety of entertaining and educational content surrounding the business, craft, and community of speculative literature. Where the magazine is focused specifically on the elevation of Black voices in short speculative fiction, FIYAHCON seeks to center the perspectives and experiences of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color). The reasoning is that Black voices are not the least represented in the field, and we don’t want to exclude groups who are already systemically excluded from other spaces. Our mission is to elevate those creatives who have not been given the space in genre they deserve–a place to flourish.
