With the convention a mere three months away, everything is getting to the fun, almost-polished stage! We have lots of information for you again this month, so grab your hot beverage of choice and settle in to have your mind blown.
Short Story Competition
Entries are being accepted now for both competitions. Short stories are to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on Sunday 30th April 2017. 13 Word Story entries can be tweeted any time before midnight on April 30, and don’t forget to include the hashtag – #con13words – this can either be in the body of the tweet or as a quote/reply.
For full list of guidelines, please visit the website: http://www.continuum.org.au/c13/blog/short-story-competition/
National Australian Fan Fund
The National Australian Fan Fund assists interstate fans to travel to the NatCon, and this year that’s us! This year’s NAFF delegates have just been announced, and voting is open until Sunday April 16th. If you’re in a position to do so, please consider voting for someone to join us at Continuum this year. Information on how to vote is available on their website: https://naffund.wordpress.com/
Dealers Room/Sunday Market
Anyone wanting to set up a table/stall at Continuum is welcome to contact us for days/rates/bookings now – information and sign up forms are available on the website.
We’re also now taking expressions of interest for volunteers to help out at the registration desk. If you’re new to the con, this can be a great way to meet people, and if you’ve been before, you already know it’s a popular place to hang out between panels! If you can spare any time at all, please contact email@example.com with Volunteering in the subject.
Don’t forget to get your membership if you haven’t already! If you have a supporting membership, and would like to upgrade, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Day rate for first-time attendees is $40. Normal day rates will be announced when the program goes live.
This year, we’re also introducing a needs-based membership for those that would otherwise not be able to attend for financial reasons. Information on how to apply is available here.
And now for the bit you’ve all been hanging out for (still have that beverage?) – NEW PANELS!
The panels page on the website (http://www.continuum.org.au/c13/program/panels/) has had some amazing new panels added to it, so please hurry over and feast your eyes. While you’re there, you’re more than welcome to sign up to be on any of the panels listed or suggest ideas that we may not have thought of yet.
