Interview Requests

Washington and Lee’s Mock Convention is proud of what it does. Organizing an entirely student-run convention takes a lot of time and dedication on the part of its members, and we love to talk about our work.

Mock Con has had positive relationships with the press since its inception, a tradition the 27th Mock Con is set to continue. Be it student newspapers or national news outlets, we are eager to provide any information we can to get more people in the know.
