Author Reading application

This year's festival is going to look a little different! We are having an in-person event October 1-3rd, and a streaming event the following weekend with largely the same film programming. We plan to have a few Author Readings take place during the festival, but most will happen as part of the streaming event Oct 8-10th.

If you would like to do an Author Reading this year, Please apply by September 27th, we will notify you by the 29th.

Use this space to list your publishing credits. If there is not enough room, list your most notable or most recent credits.
Give us a short description of what you'll be reading.
If you are planning to attend the festival in person this year, please check the box next to all the times you are available during the festival. This is how we will be assigning reading slots before films. Note that the latest reading slot would be around 9 or 10 pm each night. If you would like to do an author reading during the streaming event, you will need to record your reading (with good sound and video) and send that to us no later than October 4th.
List any recently released works (past 6 months or less) or upcoming releases (within the next 6 months). One per line.
This can be a link to your own website, social media, goodreads page, etc. Anyplace on the web where someone can find out more about you and your work. (You can list more than one)
Being accepted as a participant at our festival effectively makes you a representative of the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival community. We may not always see eye to eye with everyone in it, but we advocate respectful discourse. Time and space is precious at the festival, so those we select will be paragons of the community who are interested in bringing it together, not sowers of discord. Attacking others, name calling, belittling, taking part in flame wars (even if you believe you're on the correct side), and other such childish behavior on social media is not how we want to represent ourselves to the world. Potential participants will share these values and be vetted in this regard. All participants and attendees are also subject to our Code of Conduct (you can read the entire thing here: )
Please attach a photo that can be used with your biography. Photos must be at least 300x450 pixels (portrait orientation) in .gif, .jpg, or .png format. If you have any problems uploading a file, skip it and we'll get a headshot from you later.
Files must be less than 2 MB.
Allowed file types: gif jpg jpeg png.
If we are able to find a suitable venue, we will have a group signing on Saturday morning October 2nd, with multiple authors in the same room so that readers can buy books, get books signed, meet you, and you have a chance to talk to fans and potential fans about your work. If you would like to sell books, you need to bring your own books and have a way to sell them. We should know whether or not we will be able to do this very soon.
If you are applying to do an author reading during the streaming event, please record video of you reading, about 2-3 minutes, using the same equipment (camera, phone, computer camera) and in the same setting, lighting, etc. that you plan to do your actual reading. This is like an audition tape! We need to see you and hear you clearly. (Hot tip: Be mindful of what's behind you in the background!) PLEASE UPLOAD YOUR VIDEO TO DROPBOX, GOOGLE DRIVE, OR OTHER FILE STORAGE AND TRANSFER SERVICE, AND PASTE THE LINK BELOW.
Is there anything else you want us to know about you or your reading?
