We're going Virtual

In 2021, we'll be offering both in-person and virtual sessions. We're still working out the details, but here's what we know now:

  • All in-person sessions will take place at the Jefferson Hotel. 
  • In-person registration will also include all virtual sessions. 
  • Virtual registration will not include all sessions and activities.
  • Some virtual sessions will be offered live; the virtual schedule will be updated as sessions are confirmed and will be at additional times to those listed below.

Submit a session

With our hybrid format this year, we have reopened session submissions! Do you have a great idea or expertise related to Miss Fisher? We want to hear it! Curious about whether your session idea will work? Check out the session lists from our previous cons: 2017, 2018, and 2019.

Each session in 2021 will be 60-75 minutes long. Session formats could be single-speaker presentations, panel conversations, or (for our in-person speakers) interactive discussions. 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, Miss S, or the 1920s or 1960s eras.

The submission deadline is May 21, 2021. Selected speakers will have from the selection date until July 5 to prepare their presentations. 

Please note: Miss Fisher Con is a completely volunteer event; we are not able to compensate speakers at this time.

Here's a peek into how we think the show will run. Please note that this schedule is subject to change.
