Welcome to the Context 26 Webpage!
We're in the early stages of putting together our guest list and programming for 2013. We've posted our writing workshops. We'll definitely be offering our Friday Night Flash Fiction Contest again this year with some great prizes!
Be sure to get your hotel room ASAP, because hotel space will be at a premium throughout Columbus due to the OSU football game.
If you have any questions about our programming, please email our program staff at email@example.com.

Here's what our guests and attendess have had to say about Context:
"It was my first time as a Guest of Honor, and you really made me feel at home and welcome. The panels were great, and the people, both other panelists and the guests, were wonderful. I got to meet some long-term online friends in person, and made lots of new ones."
– Alex Bledsoe on Context 25
"If you get a chance to attend (Context) do so! It was a blast."
– Raven Bower on Context 20
"I'll always have a soft spot for Context because it was there, in 2006, that I met Paula Guran and sold Blood Magic in the hallway in a frantic 5-minute pitch session. Even better, I met a boatload of extremely nice people, writers and fans, all of whom walked right up to me as if I were someone worth talking to."
– Matt Cook on Context 21
"I was pleasantly surprised at the depth of the discussions. Still more impressive was the con suite: egg sandwiches, sushi, donated pizza from a local joint, buffet food such as meatballs and chicken tenders, etc. Everyone was accessible at virtually all times. I definitely recommend it."
– Nick Mamatas on Context 21
