December 2021 Announcements

Hello Parsec-sff, Confluence and Parsec Ink people!

There are lots of great changes happening within the Parsec Inc. organization.

In January 2022, our new Parsec Program Committee meeting co-chairs will be Scot Noel and Jane Noel from DreamForge Magazine of Science and Fantasy Fiction!

Welcome Scot and Jane!

We look forward to seeing the programming you schedule for us during 2022!

Jane Noel is the Founder of Chroma Studios, a digital marketing agency located in Jeannette PA.  She holds a degree in Visual Communications from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and more years of experience than she cares to count. Before founding CME, Jane worked as an Artist, Art Lead, Art Director, and Project Manager for the computer game developer DreamForge Intertainment, where she worked on a number of early computer games, including Roger Zelazny’s Chronomaster. Jane manages Illustration, Design, and Layout for DreamForge Anvil and DreamForge Magazine.

Scot Noel is a content writer and content manager for websites, blogs, social media, e-newsletters, and the like. Speculative fiction has always been his obsession, resulting in a Writers of the Future 2nd place win in 1990, a 7-year career in computer game development, and a handful of published stories, ranging from far future and zombie fiction to the tale of a fairy sheriff fighting an evil dragon. He serves as the editor and publisher of DreamForge Anvil and DreamForge Magazine.

There will be no Parsec Holiday Party or Zoom meeting in Dec 2021.

Unfortunately we do not have a location to hold an in-person party and there is little interest in trying a Zoom party again this year.

We hope you and your family have a wonderful Holiday Season and a very Happy New Year!

The new Parsec Inc logo was officially adopted by the Board of Directors on Dec 4th, 2021
