The way this year has gone, it’s not as surprising as it might have been.
But it’s still sad: SiglerFest X is officially canceled. And since it was to be our last SiglerFest due to an ever intensifying writing schedule, it’s also the end of SiglerFest.
Trust me, as bummed out as that might make you feel, it’s been a heavy hit for us. SiglerFest has marked the last decade of growth for EmptySet and for Scott and I: professionally, of course, but also personally.
SiglerFest has become, as I say, “the best family reunion I never knew I needed,” so it’s terribly hard to let it go now, when we have no idea when family reunions will be a thing again. And we know we’re not the only ones missing the feeling of being surrounded by your peeps: it’s all of us, for a million reasons.
But the Siglers are nothing if not forward looking! After a whole lot of thought, we realized that the only thing that could combat the anticipation of a wait that could be years longs was to stop waiting. We’re going to move forward in this novel timeline the only way we know how: making cool things for cool people, connecting however we can until we can connect with other humans again!
We’re such lucky people: We get to continue to create here in lockdown, bringing you long-promised stories and connecting weekly live.
Here’s to 2021, and hoping the best is yet to come!Continue Reading →
