Book Donations & Sponsorship Opportunities
The World Fantasy Convention (WFC) has been held since 1975 as an annual gathering and reunion of professionals, collectors, and others interested in the field of light and dark fantasy art and literature. The four-day convention includes comprehensive programming geared toward professionals and enthusiasts in the genre and also offers a high-quality art show and a dealers’ room. The culminating event is the World Fantasy Award ceremony and banquet, where the coveted award is bestowed on the previous year’s best fantasy literature and on individuals whose work has helped to define and shape the genre.

SPONSOR A MEMBER
World Fantasy Convention is the place for professionals in the fantasy and horror genre to gather with their peers, to meet with their editors and agents, to exchange ideas, and to promote their books or artwork to an appreciative audience. But conventions are expensive, and not always financially feasible for individuals. Sponsorships can make it possible. If you're interested in sponsoring an individual (or several!) to attend this year's World Fantasy Convention, contact us via email for more information.
Sponsorship funds of all amounts are appreciated! Donations not earmarked will go toward the costs of running this year's convention, including:
Technology purchase and development
Printing and shipping materials
Administrative costs (ex: website hosting, financial fees, guest expenses, etc.)
*To designate a donation for a specific purpose, contact the treasurer
