Donate to ConTessa
Join us at GeekGirlCon in Seattle September 30th & October 1st, 2017! This year we'll just be running Tabletop Games so choose your favorite board game, card game or RPG and run it with us! All ConTessa GMs who run at least two games will receive a free pass to the con and an invite to our Dinner Party Sunday night! The event submission period has ended but you can still sign up to play games!
GeekGirlCon celebrates and honors the legacy of women contributing to science and technology; comics, arts, and literature; and game play and game design by connecting geeky women worldwide and creating community to foster continued growth of women in geek culture through events. Check out their website to learn more!
At ConTessa, our goal is to change the demographic of gaming "leadership" by running tons of games and events at conventions led by people from a variety of "marginalized" demographics and attended by anyone. No matter how big or small the con, we love showing up and challenging what it looks like to be a GM. Find out more about us on our 'About' page, but don't forget to come back here to submit a game for our program!
"Absolutely AMAZING. I ran Pugmire for Kids and would LOVE LOVE to do the same again." -Sarah E.
"I had a blast running games for ConTessa last year at Gencon 2016!! I decided to do it because I wanted to be apart of something so special and pro women. Being a female GM and being surrounded by a whole room of other amazing women who support what I do and who I am was a fantastic experience!! I can't wait to do it again this year for the special 50th GenCon!!!" -Emily D.
