Programming Information

This is the twelfth in a series of posts that is designed to help potential presenters prepare proposals for programming. We recognize that many people want to share their thoughts on Harry Potter with others--and may not regularly present at conferences. Posts in this series will cover everything from the mechanics of a proposal to choosing an appropriate presentation format to tips and tricks for making a proposal attractive. If you have any questions beyond what's covered here, please e-mail us at programming@terminus2008.org.

Proposing a Presentation, Part 12: The Quick Summary Guide to Artists and Authors Night Programming (and the Gallery)

Fanfiction Readings: You may submit standalone works, chapters, or excerpts of works, but all of your work to be read must be one proposal. If you have collaborative works with other authors who will attend and read with you, those works may become separate proposals. You may submit works to be read even if you cannot attend, but you must name a registered, committed proxy reader by April 15, 2008, if the works are accepted.

Fanart Portfolios: You may submit portfolios of 2-D and 3-D art (and crafts!) of up to 30 pieces, in one proposal per artist or collaborative group. Art included in a fanart portfolio may also be included in the gallery, and retrieved during your presentation. You must attend the conference to show a fanart portfolio.

Gallery Art: You may submit art to be displayed in the Terminus gallery, with proposals of up to 5 pieces of 2-D or 3-D art per artist or collaborative group. You may request that Terminus print and display your 2-D art. Art may be retrieved from the gallery for use in a fanart portfolio showing, but otherwise, art should remain in the gallery during the conference. You do not need to attend Terminus to have art displayed in the gallery.

Sketch Booth: You may apply to staff the sketch booth for an hour during Artists and Authors Night, where you'll create quick, small-scale line art in response to attendee requests.

Art Critique Booth: You may apply to staff the art critique booth for an hour during Artists and Authors Night, where you'll provide feedback on attendee-created art.

Drabble Booth: You may apply to staff the drabble booth for an hour during Artists and Authors Night, where you'll write very short stories in response to attendee requests.

Beta Booth: You may apply to staff the beta booth for an hour during Artists and Authors Night, where you'll provide feedback on attendees' creative writing, and on a grammar test available at the booth.


Booth Application Deadline: February 1, 2008
Gallery Art Submission Deadline: March 1, 2008
Late May, 2008: Programming schedule published for August 8-10, 2008.
