Hal-Con Reading and Discussion Series
Are you a storyteller looking for a platform to share your work? Are you interested in learning new skills or expanding your storytelling community? Well, you’re in the right place!
Hal-Con, your favourite local nerd community, is proud to present a new event series coming to the Halifax Central Library on May 19, 2018, at 2pm AT. Award-winning local author, Nicola R. White will be with us to discuss the ins and outs of self-publishing but we’re looking for more authors to join us too! So, we’re opening up for submissions from anyone who wants to share their work in a public reading.
- Submission Period will be from March 3, 2018 – April 14, 2018. Hal-Con reserves the right to end the period early depending on the volume of submissions.
- Maximum two submissions of original work per person.
- We are looking for genre fiction, anything science fiction or fantasy will fit.
- Submissions must be appropriate for all ages, to be determined by the selection committee.
- Submissions are welcome from anyone in the Maritime region but if selected the author should be available for a May 19 appearance in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
- Any work can be submitted, short stories, excerpts from longer work, or poems. (1500 word limit.)
- All selected storytellers will be informed within 14 days of the closing of the Submission Period.
- Submissions should be emailed as a Word Document or PDF to email@example.com
