For more information, use the navigation bar at the top of this page, or simply drop us an email.

ADA Accommodations

ConGregate will attempt to make reasonable accommodations for with those with special needs and/or requests. Please contact our Accessibility Coordinator, Richard Sarner, with your requests.

Hawaiian Shirt Friday

Each year, Congregate remembers contributors that we have lost from the science fiction and fantasy world. The tradition began in memory of Aaron Allston, who was well known for his love of Hawaiian shirts. We encourage everyone to wear a Hawaiian shirt on Friday, July 9, 2021.
