Leviosa is a new Harry Potter and YA Literature convention that's a return to the mid-sized, hotel-based, academic-fannish con model. The con has six tracks of programming, including Academic, Fandom, Creativity, Slash & Queer Lit, YA Literature, and Writing. Programming will be a mix of user-submitted proposals and sessions featuring special guests, including bestselling authors and top literary agents. Plus, there will be tons of fun, informal programming, including a game name, a craft faire, trivia, karaoke, and a magical ball.

WisCon welcomes writers, editors and artists whose work explores these themes as well as their many fans. We have panel discussions, academic presentations, and readings as well as many other uncategorizable events. WisCon is primarily a book-oriented convention... with an irrepressible sense of humor."

Figments & Filaments is a celebration of "costuming & cosplay in all of its various genres and applications. Whether researching the clothing of a by-gone era, designing costume for stage or screen or the whim of an individual, what one wears can say volumes of not only the times & society that a person identifies with, but also what that person says about themselves and their society." Guests of honor include author and costume historian Gale Owen-Crocker (An Encyclopaedia of Dress and Textiles of the British Isles, c.450-1100) and author and costume designer Matthew Gnagy, who works as a tailor on Saturday Night Live and teaches at Parsons University of Fashion Design.
