So, creative people...

...would you be willing to do work for me for FREE? Yeah, well, okay I know the real answer to that. :) However, I'm doing the ConDFW program book this year, and I'm going to be putting a page of SF/F/H-related classified ads into it. I've asked the guest relations director to forward a request to our panelists for contributions, but I'm also seeking donations elsewhere. I cannot offer anything but my undying gratitude and your name in the program book (and on the website, if you're willing to let me put it there, too) because the con is small and poor.

Anyway, if you're interested, read on!

It can be a reference to a specific story, movie, or whatever, or just something vaguely SF/F/H-related. And it can be a lonely hearts ad, or selling something, or missed connection, or job ad, whatever sort of ad you'd get in the classifieds.

An (perhaps not that good) example would be:

Lonely alien seeks host for close cuddling, possible LTR. Send holo of face to Box 535.

I'll list the contributors after the ads, in the order the ads appear, so they won't go uncredited, and if you can indicate whether we have permission to post them on the website after the con, that would be great.

Awesome, thank you! How would you like to be credited? And is it OK for me to put them on the con's website afterward?

Did I send you this one:

Lance, please come home. Gwen and I miss you. ~ Art

No, you hadn't! Thank you! OK to be credited by your name & to put on the website?

Sure.
