Furry Writers' Guild Forum

Furlandia Conbook

From the Furlandia Website: https://furlandia.org/2020/participate/conbook/

This year we are producing our own custom themed programing guide containing all you need to know about the convention and the hotel. Our conbooks are available both digitally, as well as in physical form for those who wish to purchase one. These are works of art that keep you informed during your time in Furlandia and serve as souvenirs long after the con has ended.

We would like to use our conbook to showcase some of the very best in original artwork and stories created for and by the attendees of Furlandia. We look forward each year to submissions from people like you to help make this year’s conbook special and unique.

To ensure your creations look good in print, we’ve come up with some basic requirements listed below that your submissions will need to meet. Please make sure you understand these requirements before you send your submissions as we may not be able to include artwork or written material which does not meet the requirements below.

Please also note that while we will try to publish as many submissions as possible in this year’s conbook, final selection for inclusion in the conbook will be at the discretion of the event leadership team. Submissions of a high enough quality that fail to make it into the conbook may, at the events discretion, be shared on our website and on social media sites attached to Furlandia.

Please reach out to us at Conbook@furlandia.org if you are interested in contributing.

Is there a theme for the con that you want reflected in submissions?

Just to make sure you know, I’m not a part of the con staff here. I’m just sharing these markets for the guild!

However, the theme for the convention this year is ‘Furlandia At Night’ if that’s helpful. Keeping things on theme usually can’t hurt for these kinds of submissions!

The theme of Furlandia this year is “Episode 8”, centered around classic TV shows. (I’m not part of the con staff either, for the record. I’m just a local.)

Anyone know what the deadline is?

I asked their Twitter account – sounds like April 12.
