Greetings, science fiction writers from around the world! This is a friendly reminder that Tuesday Funk wants you as a reader for our September 4th edition!
With the 70th World Science Fiction Convention coming to Chicago from August 30 to September 3rd, we couldn't just sit back and not try to lure some of the best of today's speculative fiction writers into our cozy little lair, so here's the deal.
We're looking for five writers to read for us on September 4th, the night after Worldcon ends. If you're a professionally published science fiction or fantasy writer who will be in town for Worldcon and you plan to stick around Chicago for an extra day or two afterward, please submit a work of up to 2,500 words to firstname.lastname@example.org. This can be a complete short story or a novel excerpt. Use "Post-Worldcon Reading" as your subject line. (Please see our guidelines page for a complete explanation of how to submit.)
Submissions must be received by Tuesday, May 22, 2012, to be considered for one of these five slots. Decisions on the lineup 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, Richard Chwedyk, Mary Anne Mohanraj, Brenda Cooper, and Steven H Silver, and in the months to come we'll bring you Alex Shakar, Holly McDowell, 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!
