Doxacon Seattle 2021: Speakers and Sessions!

It’s been a bit since our last post here — the holidays have been a little more tumultuous than expected this year. But we have a great slate of speakers and sessions lined up for Doxacon Seattle, and we’re excited to introduce them to you!

You already know our keynote speakers: Clerical Keynotes Fr. Marcin Szymanski, OP and Fr. Augustine Hilander, OP, and Lay Keynote Bev Cooke.

In addition, the day will include:

  • Fr. Steven Clark leading the Akathist (an Orthodox morning prayer of praise)
  • Rev. Paul Schneider & Rev. Mindi Welton-Michell on “Hopepunk Theology”
  • Tim Brown on “Killing Baby Hitler”
  • A panel led by Reece Friesen on the trope of prophesy in fantasy and pop culture
  • Pres. Elizabeth Tervo and the Doxacon Writer’s Group offering writing inspirations
  • A Collaborative Story Project
  • Gaming session(s)
  • Social chats and open topical discussions!

We’re still hammering out the details on the schedule, but we’ll get exact times to you as soon as we’re able.

In the meantime, let your friends, family, and fellow geeks know what we’ve got planned! Get your tickets, and get ready for a day of fantasy, faith, and fun on January 30!

Artwork reveal and Call for Submissions!

We can’t let a pandemic hold us back! We’re hosting Doxacon Seattle 2021: Prophecy and Prediction online through Zoom this year. Tickets will be at a reduced price (because tech is cheaper than a room and food), and we’ll send you details soon. And we’re looking for presenters. See below for our Call for Submissions!

Stay tuned for registration information!
