ConSpyer is an online magazine covering fan conventions and art conventions of all varieties. This could mean fantasy conventions, sci-fi conventions, literary conventions, anime conventions, comic book cons, gaming cons, filk, steampunk, cosplay, and so on. Our goal is to provide complete scheduling information as well as news, entertainment, interviews, convention information, con coverage, photos, videos, and anything else that might be relevant for convention-goers.
About cooperative enterprises
Cooperatives are run differently than typical companies, in that the heirarchical nature of leaders and followers is replaced by an atmosphere of mutual cooperation between all members of the organization. It is, essentially, the democratization of the workplace. ConSpyer is a member site of the Home for Artists cooperative, a group of creative types who have come together to make a humble attempt at advancing art and culture in the United States and beyond.
This is a new site by a new company, and as such, revenue is slim. If you enjoy what we are doing, and would like to see it continue (and to grow), please consider donating! You can find our Paypal donation button in the right-hand column of this page.
