If you would like to Volunteer, please fill out the Volunteer form.

How would you like to participate?
Your name, or if you are filling this out on behalf of someone else, their full name. If welcomed as a participant, this name will be shown in the guest listing on the website and program.
This will be our primary form of communication with you, please type carefully. This will not be listed or shared without your permission.
Select "Yes" if you would like to be added to our general announcement mailing list.
This is a communication method of last resort and we will only use it if absolutely necessary (i.e. your panel is about to start and we can't find you.)
Not required, but can be helpful for finding out more about you.
City, State, Country where you reside.
Please list any conventions where you have been a guest speaker, panelist, reader, artist guest, etc. If this is your first one, put "N/A" (Don't worry, everyone has to start somewhere!)
example: illustration, comic, painting, sculpture, dark matter, etc.
Tables are $50 for a 6' table. Includes 1 chair and 1 badge. In most cases, we will be limiting artist tables to 1 per company, to accommodate as many artists as possible. If we're able to give you more than 1 table, we'll let you know asap. Note that the area where artists tables will be is not secure. You will need to set up on Saturday morning, break down Saturday night, and re-set Sunday morning.
Pickman's Apprentice is a quick drawing competition. This is meant to be fun, so if you don't perform well under pressure, this may not be for you. If you choose "Yes," we will slot you into the competition which will take place Saturday and Sunday.
Please enter a plain text, single paragraph biography. This should be in the third person (no "I"). If you are invited to participate, this will be used in the program. Ideally less than 150 words. No links or urls. Book titles and long publications should look like this: _Title of Book_ (please do not use all caps).
Please upload a bio picture that we can use for print and web. This should be a portrait style shot, at least 500x500 pixels.
Files must be less than 2 MB.
Allowed file types: gif jpg png.
Use this space to list your publishing, film, art, speaking credits. If there is not enough room, list your most notable or most recent credits.
If you are applying to be a panelist, please suggest at least one panel topic that you feel comfortable discussing. Include a title, description, and a dream team of panelists to be on it with you.
List any recently released works (past 12 months or less) or upcoming releases (within the next 6 months). One per line. This can be books, films, art shows, etc.
A group signing involves multiple authors in the same room so that readers can buy books, get them signed, meet and chat with you. This also gives you a chance to talk to fans about your work!
This will help us schedule programming. Active convention hours are Sat 4/25 10am-11pm, Sun 4/26 10am-4pm. "N/A" indicates you are available the entire time.
