MISS FISHER CON 2020
The 2020 Miss Fisher Con will be held in Richmond, Virginia on July 9 - 11, 2020! Member registration is now open, and whatever slots are left will be offered up to the general public beginning January 1, 2020! The hotel details are not yet finalized, but we'll have those soon.
Submit a session
We're now accepting session submissions! Do you have a great idea or expertise related to Miss Fisher? We want to hear it! In past years, we've heard folks speak on such topics as fashion, makeup, poisons, the history of the Hispano-Suiza, fanfiction, and more - check out the session lists from our previous cons: 2017, 2018, and 2019.
Each session in 2020 will be 60-75 minutes long, and we are flexible about the session format - we encourage submission of everything from panel conversations to conference-style papers to hands-on workshops and maker sessions. The only requirement is that they must have a tie to the original material, whether that's the books, the original show, the MOD show, or the 1920s or 1960s eras.
The submission deadline is February 1, 2020. Selected speakers will have from the selection date until July to prepare their presentations.
Please note: Miss Fisher Con is a completely volunteer event; we are not able to compensate speakers at this time.
Our members learn everything first, so if you want a head start, join the Adventuresses' Club of the Americas today! And if you're not yet signed up for our newsletter, it's not too late - you'll hear from us about once a month, and we always try to have fandom information that you'll enjoy.
Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears trailer
In case you haven't seen it, we've pulled in the teaser trailer for the movie - it's divine! (The full trailer is available only in Australia right now, but we'll share it when we can.) We are certain that Phryne would be pleased.
In addition to the Twitter post we've embedded here, you can watch it on Tumblr - and if you're like us, you might need a few viewings to take it all in. Enjoy!
