Icon is Iowa's oldest science fiction convention, having been around for 37 years. In part founded by students from Joe Haldeman's writing workshop at the University of Iowa, Icon has a rich writing tradition.
Each year Icon is attended by a notable writing guest. This year, we are proud to have many writing industry guests: Nancy Kress, Jack Skillingstead, Ellen Datlow, Joe Haldeman, Gregory Frost, and Jim C. Hines. Local authors, such as Sarah Prineas, also attend and lecture at Paradise Icon.
Details about this year's Icon are right here.
