Capclave, the Washington, D.C. area science fiction literary convention,
offers a relaxed atmosphere in which notable authors, editors, critics,
artists, and fans explore the creation and enjoyment of fantasy and
science fiction. Capclave focuses on short stories, but also gives lots
of attention to novels, movies, and TV. Because we're small, we're friendly
and fun, not frantic.
Past Capclaves have hosted discussions with authors and fans; readings;
a dealer's room with books, magazines, artwork, crafts, and other science fiction
and fantasy related items; the WSFA small press award; workshops on writing,
reviewing, reading; science presentations; a hospitality suite; room parties;
interesting conversations with fans and professionals; and a relaxed
atmosphere for visiting old friends and making new ones.
Our hotel is the same as in 2007, steps away from the Metro and right on Rt. 355,
near tons of food and shopping.
