For the second iteration of The Ineffable Con, we are heading online for an entirely virtual convention experience!

Our goal is to bring you everything that made last year’s convention special, without having to leave your home. As well as making the convention pandemic-proof, we hope this will enable us to include people who would not have been able to travel to a physical convention.
