Conbook Guidelines

Submissions close August 1st
How do I submit?

To submit an ad or artwork to the conbook, please send an email to with the title "Conbook submission" (or something similar) and include the files as attachments.


What kind of writings can I submit?
Some types you may submit are:

  • Poems
  • Short Stories
  • Excerpts from longer stories
  • Drabbles
You may submit up to 2 pieces of writing.

Writing Specifications

File Type: .txt*, .rtf, .docx, .pdf, links to google docs are also acceptable
Character Count (excluding spaces): 250 minimum. 5k maximum.

*Please note that .txt files do not support bold, italics, etc.

Ad Space

How much does it cost for ad space?
Ad space is free, although there are only 10 slots and it is first-come-first-serve. When submitting your ad, it is recommended to submit both a full-page version and a half-page version. This is because the size of your ad may depend on how many slots are filled.

10 out of 10 slots left!

What types of ads qualify?

  • Events/conventions
  • Products (books, crafts, etc.)
  • Online shops (redbubble, etsy,, artconomy, etc.)

Ad Specifications

File Type: Non-transparent .png, .jpg/jpeg*

  • Full-page: 3400x4400px
  • Half-page: 3400x2200px
*.png is preferred, since .jpg/jpeg is a lossy format.

Some themes you may use in your artwork are:

  • General
  • Help
  • Activities
  • Health
You may submit up to 2 pieces of art. We also have an aquatic theme this year, so keep that in mind!
