Worldcon participants, Tuesday Funk wants you!

chicon-logo160.jpg Tuesday Funk is proud and excited that the 70th World Science Fiction Convention will be coming to Chicago from August 30 to September 3rd, 2012!

It so happens that our September reading will take place Tuesday, September 4th, 2012, the day after Worldcon ends. We plan to put on an evening of great science fiction readings that night—a veritable Science Fiction Spectacular—which means we need us some great science fiction writers.

If you're a science fiction writer coming to town for Worldcon and you plan to stick around Chicago for an extra day or two afterward, and you'd like to be one of our five readers, please have a look at our guidelines page and drop us a line at tuesdayfunkchicago@gmail.com. We'd love to have you be part of our Speculative Fiction Spectacular. (In fact, today is the day that Worldcon hotel registration opens, so please keep us in mind as you make your plans.)

Please email us by Tuesday, May 22, 2012, to be considered for one of these five September slots. Decisions will be made by Tuesday, June 5, 2012, and announced at the Tuesday Funk reading that evening. In the past we've hosted such names as Jody Lynn Nye, Brenda Cooper, and Steven H Silver, and in the months to come we'll bring you Alex Shakar, Mary Anne Mohanraj, Richard Chwedyk, and more. Want to add your name to that roster? Drop us a line!

And if you're a science fiction fan, please mark September 4th on your calendar. It's going to be a terrific evening!
