You too can be part of the world famous* SHareCon zine!
* Depending on your definitions of the words world and famous.
We’re looking for a few (dozen) fic writers (slash, gen, or both if you can swing it), essayists, artists, poets, pundits, puzzlers, punsters, limerick-ers, cartoonists, trivia addicts, drabblers, humorists, quoters, or any other -ist or -ers that have to do with our boys. Multiple submissions are welcome. Crossovers are welcome as long as Starsky and Hutch are the main focus.
In a perfect world, all submissions would be around 5-10 pages (or roughly, no more than 5,000-7,000 words). But we don’t live in a perfect world, so if your submission is longer, talk to us. We might have the ideal place for it.
We’re also always in need of really short pieces to put at the end of longer stories. If you send us some, we’ll send Starsky and/or Hutch over to keep you company.**
**Offer not valid on the third planet from Sol. Void where prohibited. But please send in short pieces, medium pieces, and anything in between; it will make Flamingo, Cyanne, and our readers very happy.
When sending your submission, please make sure the title of the piece and your author name and email address is on the submission itself. Once a file is separated from your email, we can lose track of those important details.
Contributors who are attending or supporting the con will receive both a digital and hard copy of the zine. Other contributors who submit at least one full page of content will also receive a trib copy in both formats. A page of content could be a full-page art piece, a long poem, a short story or nonfiction essay of at least 600 words, puzzles, 6 drabbles, and so on. If you have a shorter submission or a very long one, talk to us.
We want exclusive rights to your work up to and for six months after the con, that is, until March 27, 2020. That means whatever you submit must be new, not published anywhere in print or on the net even in part, and that you won’t post it anywhere online or publish it elsewhere until that date. After March 27th, it’s all yours.
Send submissions or questions needing a private response to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions that can be addressed publicly can be posted to this mailing list or the Starsky/Hutch the Original Bromance (slash/ship) community on Facebook using the hashtag #SHareCon.

Deadline for submissions is July 1, 2019, but feel free to beat the rush and get yours in sooner. Deadlines might make a lovely whooshing sound as they go by, but missing this one won’t get your lovely creation in the SHareCon zine for all to see.
Thanks in advance from your (we’re-really-not-going-to-panic-this-year) editors, Cyanne and Flamingo.
