The Thaumatrope Fiction Relocation Project is a program to help get your nanofiction into convention program books
You’ve written your story... You’ve been paid a professional rate... anything after that is gravy, right? Consider this: Conventions are often on the lookout for filler material for their program books. They often need little items to fill the oddly shaped gaps between articles. Traditionally they’ve used spot illustrations — but what if it were simple and easy for them to use nanofiction? Wouldn’t you like to get your name and story in convention program books and in front of science fiction, fantasy, and horror fans?
Read the following agreement, and if everything looks OK to you, then shift some of your Thaumatrope fiction into the project. Shifting your work into the project will allow convention organizations to find it on a special section of the Convention Finder and add it to their program books.
Questions can be sent to: Nathan E. Lilly, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sending copies of the program book to Thaumatrope and the author is appreciated. By publishing the work in their program book, The Convention agrees to the following:
