SIRENS is a Feminist Fantasy convention for writers, readers, librarians, agents, publishers and basically anyone who likes women in their fantasy. It rocked.
I have never been to such a warm and welcoming environment as a writer.
The conversations were stimulating, the panels were insightful and the chance to rub elbows with every tier of participant was the most brilliant part. Several times I fond myself sitting across the table from a key note speaker or meeting someone who would then introduce me to someone else they thought I might find interesting.
