Recently, a first-year attendee
asked, on Facebook, how a newcomer can fit in during their first Penguicon. Many of our attendees responded, and kindly allowed us to share them with you:
“It was my first convention ever, and I had so much fun. It’s big enough to have a lot going on, but small enough that you can get to know people there.” – Megan Gedris
“Penguicon always seemed like a con whose theme was “All the stuff nerds/geeks like to do”. So there is probably at least one awesome panel for everyone who attends and lots of great panels … no matter who you are. Seriously, the diversity is amazing. I can’t remember exactly my first Penguicon experience but I went as a presenter with a group and we picked out a couple of things that sounded cool and they were.” – Jeannette Quirk
“I moved from Manhattan to Michigan to be around this community. For me, it’s truly home. I found Penguicon five years ago, flew in from Seattle, and was completely hooked. Don’t be nervous… we are the most accepting, fun, and passionate group you may ever meet” – Nuri Gocay
“I did my first Penguicon with my business Serenity in Chains. It was an amazing experience! I don’t think I’ve been to a con with more friendly, outgoing confolk! We will be there again this year as well.” – Michelle Maddux, Serenity In Chains
