The auction at con_or_bust is going very well, and there have been many new things added since bidding started, so please stop by and take a look if you haven't recently. Bidding closes next Saturday, March 13.
I want to remind everyone that fans of color may request assistance over at this post. I would also like to clear up a couple of potential misconceptions:
- Con or Bust isn't a scholarship or an academic endeavor or anything like that. If you're worried that you don't have a doctorate or a published novel or an all-encompassing theory of the intersection between feminism and racism or a LiveJournal, please don't be. If you're a person of color, you want to go to WisCon, and you need assistance to do so, Con or Bust is for you, period.
- People who have previously received assistance are not automatically precluded from receiving assistance again. If we ever have insufficient resources to help everyone, I imagine that previous assistance will be relevant, but I hope very much that this will not be a problem this year or in future years.
(I've edited the assistance post itself to include these clarifications.)
Please spread the word! Thanks again.
