  • When is the conbook deadline?

  • Where do I send conbook submissions?
  • We strongly encourage electronic submission of material. Please see the Conbook Submission Guidelines for complete details on file formats and specifications. You may upload submissions and release forms to our upload site located at https://www.hightail.com/u/anthrocon
    Alternately, you may send submissions via US Mail to:

    Anthrocon - Publications Department
    c/o Karl Jorgensen
    P. O. Box 4211
    Leesburg, VA 20177

  • Can I send my release form electronically?
  • Yes. You may either send your scanned release form to the upload site at https://www.hightail.com/u/anthrocon or e-mail it to [email protected]. Please note release
    forms must contain an actual signature or be electronically signed as a PDF.

  • Do I have to send a release form for each submission?
  • No. You may include multiple submissions on the same release form. (Use the back of the release form if additional space is needed.)

  • What happens if I don't send a release form?
  • Your submissions cannot be entered into our database and tracked without a completed release form. If we do not have a completed release form on file by the deadline, we cannot use your submission(s). A release form is available online at http://www.anthrocon.org/conbook

  • Can I submit work created by someone else?
  • No.

  • Can I submit work that has someone else's character in it?
  • If your work contains copyrighted characters that are not yours, then you must obtain written permission to use those characters or likeness from the copyright holder and submit it with the release form. Anthrocon is unable to use any works without this additional release.

  • Was my submission received?
  • We will attempt to notify you via e-mail that your submission has been received. You can e-mail us at [email protected] to ask if your submission was received, or send us a SASE with your release form.

  • Was my submission selected for publication the conbook?
  • Due to deadlines, it is difficult to inform content creators if their work has been selected for publication prior to the convention. We make changes to the conbook right up to (and sometimes after) the conbook has been submitted to the printer.

  • Will I get a copy of the finished conbook?
  • In efforts to keep costs down, we have discontinued the post-convention mailing of conbooks to all contributors. If you are not attending the convention and would like one sent, one will be mailed to you after the convention upon request.

  • What is your mailing address?
  • Publications-related correspondence only can be sent to:

    Anthrocon - Publications Department
    c/o Karl Jorgensen
    P. O. Box 4211
    Leesburg, VA 20177

    Note this is different than the main Anthrocon address.
