Keycon is Manitoba’s premier Science Fiction & Fantasy Literary Convention. It focuses on science fiction, fantasy and related literary genres in any form. It includes, but is not limited to, writing, visual arts, television and film.


A heartfelt thanks to all who bent their efforts to making Keycon 33 a major highlight of 2016, and to all who attended. Stay tuned for news about the special event Keycon will be formally announcing in the next little while.
