Vancoufur 2024 Con Book Submissions

Vancoufur 2024: Claws & Clockwork conbook needs submissions from our beloved community! Whether you’re a budding artist, experienced author or up-and-coming business, we have space for you!

Submission Deadline is Jan 5, 2024.

General Content
All submissions must be suitable for a general audience (PG at most) and cannot contain the following:
• Excessive violence and gore – just a little blood is fine!
• Sex and graphic sexual content – let’s try and keep it clean, please.
• Foul/offensive language – hate speech will especially not be tolerated.
• Excessive alcohol/drug use – it may be fantasy, but you still shouldn’t go overboard with the stuff!

Short Stories
Stories are limited to 2000 words and should take heavy influence from the theme of Steampunk. Our theme revolves around a 2 tiered city, with an upper city and lower city. No airships, but trains, trams, and other clockwork type stuff ok. Stories of Innovation, hope, determination, and winning against the odds are encouraged. We highly recommend taking the time to format your text, in addition to checking for spelling and grammar, to ensure easy publishing. We will accept stories in TXT, RTF, DOC, DOCX, ODT and FODT file formats. Email submissions to


Art Submissions
Our book will be published with a page size of 5.5 x 8.5 in. For optimal results, we recommend that art submissions be saved in a resolution of 300 DPI and in CMYK color mode. For the digital edition, you may choose to submit a separate version in the same resolution, in RGB color mode. For full-page submissions, we suggest adding additional space in your file to allow for clean cuts.

We will accept files in the following formats (recommended color modes):
CAUTION: Files must not exceed a canvas size of 6000 x 6000 pixels and be no larger than 10 MB!
