MediaWest*Con 39 -- Relaunching May 24-27, 2019

MediaWest*Con 39 – May 24-27, 2019

MediaWest*Con is the annual gathering of SF/Media fandom, traditionally held each Memorial Day Weekend in Lansing Michigan.

As we relaunch MediaWest*Con 39, we remember all the reboots and reimaginings of some of our favorite TV series and films.  Some may be faithful to the originals, some may be completely different, and, well, some are more successful than others.  Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Batman, Spiderman, Lost in Space... the list goes on.  Everything old is new again!  Come join us and rekindle, refresh, and rejuvenate your fannish interests!

MediaWest*Con is sponsored by T’Kuhtian Press as a celebration of the diversity of SF/Media fandom, run by fans, for fans, and is staffed entirely by volunteers.  MediaWest*Con programming is determined by member input and participation.  Programming is intended for an adult audience;  we do not censor adult themes in panel topics or in the Art Show.  We have no official guests.  The name MediaWest*Con is a service mark of MediaWest*Con.
