Treklanta (formerly TrekTrax Atlanta), hosted by the USS Republic NCC-1371, is an annual science fiction convention based in Atlanta, Georgia, dedicated to space opera in general and Star Trek in particular, that places special emphasis on fan-based events, activities, programming and productions. The first three conventions, held from 2011 to 2013, were devoted exclusively to the Star Trek franchise. In 2014, the convention expanded its focus to include other space opera franchises such as Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century and Babylon 5.

Leviosa 2016

Jul 7th-10th 2016

Henderson, NV 89052

Leviosa is a return to the smaller scale, academic-fannish Harry Potter conference model, expanded to include a focus on YA Literature, writing/fan creativity, and multi-fandom interest. We’re staffed by a group of passionate Potter fans and creatives that feel there is a space in the fan conference market for a programming-focused event anchored by a love of Harry Potter. Between us, we have attended almost every Harry Potter conference under the sun, and have ample conference and organizational experience. There are six tracks of programming you can enjoy at Leviosa: - Academic - Fandom - Creativity - Slash & Queer Lit - YA Lit - Writing What can you expect from Leviosa? Our mission is to celebrate imagination, creativity and education, via a focus on dynamic academic programming and quality fan experiences. We love talking about Harry Potter, dissecting the things that make it so important to all of us, and celebrating it through both academic exploration and more informal frivolity. But we’re not just about Harry Potter. We know that many passionate Harry Potter fans have found new fandom loves, or have become writers themselves. Come for Harry Potter, and get Young Adult Literature programming, writing and publishing workshops, and other sci-fi/fantasy fandom content.
