Joanne Hall – Jo is a fantasy writer, born in Southampton, who came to Bristol by chance and never left. She is happiest when entirely surrounded by books. She ended up chairing BristolCon when her friend Colin plied her with alcohol and said “Wouldn’t it be a great idea if….?” Every September she throws her hands up and cries “Never again!”, but she always ends up having too much fun (and booze) at BristolCon and is persuaded to carry on.
MEG – MEG is an inveterate convention organiser and attendee since her first involvement with Discworld conventions in 1998. She and husband Tim have contributed to hundreds of events between them, including Eastercon, Redemption, Worldcon & SMOFcon – mostly in the UK. Discovering that there would be a SF&F convention In Her Home Town, MEG was eager to volunteer for organising BristolCon’s programme of events and, after three successful conventions so far, is thrilled to be asked to do so again this year.
When not looking after programme, guests or attendees, MEG can usually be found in the bar. White wine for preference. Cheers!
Heather Ashley – Heather is a Bristol based psychology student and activity therapist. She has been helping out at BristolCon for the past three years, having been roped in by her friends! She is an enthusiastic consumer of speculative fiction, and her interest has been fueled by going to BristolCon and being introduced to many more authors, ideas, and a lot of people with huge imaginations!
Claire Carter – Claire is a Bristol based artist, writer, gamer, and lover of all things fantasy and sci-fi, so when the opportunity to join the committee for BristolCon came up she grabbed it with both hands. It has been a joy and a challenge and she is looking forward to doing it again next year.
Dolly Garland – Dolly Garland is a Bristol based fantasy writer, and a book-o-holic. She has been attending BristolCon for past two years, and has recently joined the committee. She is an obsessive journal keeper and the founder of Kaizen Journaling.
