We will not begin to worry about programming until after the beginning of 2014. We get contacted every year by people who want to be on programming.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I'm a writer and I'd like to be on programming (panels, readings, autographings, etc.) at ArmadilloCon. How do I go about it?
Send us an e-mail stating your qualifications and how you'd like to be involved in programming. We only use writers on programming if they've published something in a professional market. If your greatest achievement is having a story or book under consideration at a publisher or magazine, you aren't ready to be on programming. It would be best if you had at least three items published in the last 5 years in a professional market.
What about ePublishing?
We prefer physical publishing over ePublishing; however, if you have an extensive amount of ePublishing with reputable publishers, we would be happy to consider you.
What about self-publishing?
We will not consider anyone whose work is self-published unless you are Stephen King.
But I really want to be on programming!
We recommend you attend ArmadilloCon 36 and introduce yourself to the staff and other panelists. Get to know the convention and get an understanding of the kind of participants we are looking for. Meet with the editors and publishers at the convention. Networking is a great thing to do at ArmadilloCon as we usually attract a number of professionals. But do not hassle them. You should have your resume or pitch printed out and ready to give to interested parties. Lastly, do not take this personally. We had to make some tough decisions so that we continue to offer phenomenal guests and programming to everyone.
