The Orycon Art Show is open to both amateur and professional artists who specialize in science fiction, fantasy and fannish themes. Our artists represent a dynamic voice within in the fan community. Submission guidelines and the fee schedule can be found in the Art Show Rules. Art Show registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. To reserve your space please submit a completed Registration form, a signed Release and Waiver form, and a check for fees. We look forward to seeing your work!
We have some fantastic pros volunteering for these sessions, so don't miss out! The number of sessions we will have will be limited by the pros' time and room availability. There will be sign up sheets at the art show, but if all the available slots fill up before the convention, we will not be able to set up more sessions.
The dance is Friday from 9pm-3am, but really, it will start as soon as the room can be turned around. Stop by a little earlier if your dancing feet can't wait and you might be pleasantly surprised.
Is in the planning stages, Stay tuned for more information.>
The Manuscript Submission Windows is between May 25th 2012 and August 24th 2012.
Submit your best work to the workshop just as you would submit your best work to an editor. Often a piece has problems that the author doesn't know how to fix, and this is a good venue to explore solutions to those problems.
On the other hand this is not a good venue in which to present problems that you already know are there, know how to fix and haven't gotten around to eliminating. Critique time is precious and goes by very quickly. It's best spent on problems that are unknown or difficult for you to solve rather than the problems you already know how to take care of.
Open Read & Critique
An Open Read & Critique (ORC) is an opportunity to read the opening portion of your short story or novel aloud to your peers. They will then critique your work Clarion-style, in round-table marathon sessions, focusing on your first 750 words. Our theme is "How to Hook a Reader."
