Tuesday Funk is proud and excited that the 70th World Science Fiction Convention will be coming to Chicago in three short weeks! And It so happens that our 48th big reading will take place Tuesday, September 4th, 2012, the day after Worldcon ends. In honor of Worldcon, we plan to put on an evening of great science fiction readings—a veritable Science Fiction Spectacular—with a group of terrific writers we wouldn't normally be able to assemble here in Chicago.

Our stellar lineup that night will include Crawford Award winner Daryl Gregory, Norton and Morris Award nominee Rae Carson, Rajan Khanna, Adam Rakunas, and Gregory A. Wilson! You'll also get a new Poem By Bill, not to mention your pick of dozens of varieties of cold beer at the bar.

The evening gets underway with your co-hosts Sara Ross Witt and William Shunn on Tuesday, September 4th, 2012, 7:30 pm, in the upstairs lounge at the newly expanded and renovated Hopleaf, 5148 N. Clark St., Chicago. Arrive early for a seat, and grab a beer from Mark at the cash-only bar. We start seating at 7:00 pm and no earlier. Admission is always free, but you must be 21 or older. And come early or stay late after for some great Belgian-style food downstairs.

Please bring plenty of friends, and become a fan of Tuesday Funk on Facebook so you never miss an invitation to one of our readings. Dare we say they're always out of this world?

Greetings, science fiction writers from around the world! This is a friendly reminder that Tuesday Funk wants you as a reader for our September 4th edition!

chicon-logo160.jpg
With the 70th World Science Fiction Convention coming to Chicago from August 30 to September 3rd, we couldn't just sit back and not try to lure some of the best of today's speculative fiction writers into our cozy little lair, so here's the deal.

We're looking for five writers to read for us on September 4th, the night after Worldcon ends. If you're a professionally published science fiction or fantasy writer who will be in town for Worldcon and you plan to stick around Chicago for an extra day or two afterward, please submit a work of up to 2,500 words to tuesdayfunkchicago@gmail.com. This can be a complete short story or a novel excerpt. Use "Post-Worldcon Reading" as your subject line. (Please see our guidelines page for a complete explanation of how to submit.)

Submissions must be received by Tuesday, May 22, 2012, to be considered for one of these five slots. Decisions on the lineup will be made by Tuesday, June 5, 2012, and announced at the Tuesday Funk reading that evening.

In the past we've hosted such names as Jody Lynn Nye, Richard Chwedyk, Mary Anne Mohanraj, Brenda Cooper, and Steven H Silver, and in the months to come we'll bring you Alex Shakar, Holly McDowell, and more. Want to add your name to that roster? Drop us a line!

And if you're a science fiction fan, please mark September 4th on your calendar. It's going to be a terrific evening!
