Dear NoirCon friends and family,

It is with a heavy heart and much sadness that we announce NoirCon 2018 is canceled.

Recently, NoirCon lost its co-founder and co-director, Deen Kogan, who generously put an unfathomable amount of love, dedication, and hard work into the organization. While planning the 2018 conference was already underway, Deen's passing has left NoirCon without one of its most integral members, and we are unable to finalize details in time for this fall. Those who have already registered will be refunded in full. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at

Please note that NoirCon as an organization is not over. Deen would not have wanted what she helped build to fall. Once we reorganize, we will return.

NoirCon wouldn't exist without its extended family. We know you will understand, and we are grateful for your continued support and friendship over the years.

Lou Boxer and the NoirCon Crew
