Friends of Futurecon

Free thought can be subjected to intense stigma if it’s presented in the wrong way, or if the audience is not open-minded or mature enough for an adult debate.  Since Futurecon is committed to reducing stigma, we decided to experiment with our website being a content hub for lively, engaging thought.  Our content providers are known as “Friends of Futurecon”, because even though the articles are spirited, perhaps provocative, and at times controversial, we’re all friends here, and debate the ideas expressed, not the character of the author.  Because of this, contributors are given the option of writing under pseudonyms if they choose, especially if the content is outside their normal wheelhouse, or is written via a character.

If you would like to submit an article for consideration, please review our submission guidelines
