At MetropolCon 2023, Grit will moderate several panels in German, but also host a feedback session on Saturday morning (in English and German, together with Claudia: Sat 9:30-10:30, in Atelier 4)


High time to introduce another team member: Do you like our logo, the look of our website, the graphics or the merch designs on getshirts? All credit goes to our wonderful Grit, who made sure our design always looks fresh and eye-catching.

Please introduce yourself briefly

I am Grit Richter, publisher, graphic designer, cover fairy, Whovian!

Why are you part of the MetropolCon team?

Because I want the design of the con to look cool!

It’s Saturday night at a con: Where can you be found?

Getting drinks somewhere for those who are too busy themselves.

What are your wishes for the future of the speculative genres, particularly in Germany?

More diversity, more courage to try something new, more genre mixing, #MoreNonsense (German Twitter Hashtag #MehrUnfug signalling the need for progressive fiction), simply more of everything!

Best fictional sidekick of all time?

All sidekicks are great, nothing works or happens without them!

You just won a week-long trip to a fantasy/SF world of your choice: Where will you go?

To the world of Horizon Zero Dawn!

One work of speculative fiction (whether book or film or series or game) you would strongly recommend we all check out?

Doctor Who!
