Whee, progress. I have a few more things to ask, for making of
programs and flyers and such. Once I get this (especially from you
speakers), flyers, banners, and some other online advertising will
start going up.
One sidenote: any locals (Berkeley/Oakland) willing to help me aquire
(I pay and get reimbursed) and draw a butcher-paper banner advertising
the 'con (to be posted on the side of the MLK building), please let me
know your availability. Would like to have it posted within two weeks.
I want to include a page or two on the program of an attendee list -
and get a few more bits of information that I forgot to in the first
query. So, please answer these questions AS YOU WANT THEM TO APPEAR IN
THE PROGRAM. They're optional, of course, and why I'm asking rather
than just putting in the parts I know - not everyone wants to release
their email to a bunch of weird conlangers, after all. ;-)
Conlang(s) known / created / worked on:
Aspects of language creation you're interested in / 'school' of conlanging:
Group(s) / universities / affiliations you're officially representing:
Website / email / contact info:
"Talk to me about..." / general blurb (freeform space, ~2 lines' worth):
OPTIONAL but highly recommended:
You get 1-2 freeform 8.5"x11" pages PER PERSON ATTENDING, to use as
you like. The intention is that you create a showoff page for your
language(s) (eg Omniglot's style comes to mind). These will be printed
as part of the program pamphlet, and given to all attendees.
This is basically a free-form thing - fill those 1-2 pages however you
like. However, there are a couple restrictions:
* nothing offensive or anti-(insert other party/conlang/etc here)
* nothing overtly commercial (but you can eg point to your new book,
or another con, or an open house, etc)
* nothing conglomerated / non-personal - e.g. not OK to have a few
people band together to get extra space as a group. These are to be
My idea is that these will be used to show off your language, or your
philosophy, or other reasons why people should hunt you down and talk
to you - without having to take time (and create the danger of a
flamewar) in conference space per se. You can be partisan if you like,
just not anti- (if you get the distinction).
I would prefer PDF, PNG or Word DOC format. Please leave a 1" margin
on all sides. I will add your name and page number as a header, but
any other content you must add yourself. If you specifically want to
be in a particular layout (i.e. front/back side of a page vs
left/right of a spread), let me know.
Have fun with it.
The above, PLUS please add a brief (one paragraph) bio, in third
person form. The usual thing - you've seen 'em before. Feel free to
have fun with it, just have the format be normal. Can be as
conlang-centric (or not) as you like.
and (if you haven't already)
A paragraph-size summary/abstract of your topic(s).
