CONZINE 2024 INFORMATION!

Hello from the 2024 BATB con team!

We hope our wonderful fandom authors are already writing for the upcoming conzine! We’re looking forward to receiving your stories, poetry, song lyrics, essays – whatever your imagination creates.

CONZINE STORY CHALLENGE

As a special inclusion for the conzine, we’re also issuing a Story Challenge for you to consider. As you know, the theme of this year’s con is “No More Need to Hide: Freedom to Love, Freedom to Be”, and that concept is the basis for the Story Challenge.

We’re asking you to write a story about an event in any BatB character’s life that gave them the freedom to do something they’d been denied, something they’d always wished they could do or be. What was the event or dream or goal? How did it give freedom to the character? The main character should be someone from the series (i.e., a canon character), but you are free to add original characters as well.

Your story can be any length and should follow the conzine submission guidelines.

The deadline for submissions is May 1, 2024.

If you have any questions, please contact Linda SB at azurite412@gmail.com

And just to offer more encouragement, there will be a random prize drawing among all the writers who submit a story for this project. A very lucky writer will be awarded one of Karen Crow’s (Crowmama) beautiful BatB prints. 

We’ll look forward to including your stories for everyone to enjoy!

CONZINE ESSAY PROJECT

BatB has touched all our lives in so many amazing ways. We’ve often shared our own stories, and we’d love to do that in a special way in this year’s conzine.

In what will be a wonderful addition to the plethora of fanfic, art, poetry, and other submissions, we’re asking those in our fan community to consider writing an essay based on the con theme – “No More Need to Hide: Freedom to Love, Freedom to Be”.

How did BatB inspire and free you to be the person you are today? To paraphrase Catherine, how did BatB help you become the best of what it means to be you?Your essay should be from an individual, personal point of view, telling how our beloved show brought freedom to your life. It can be any length and can be published under a pen name, but please see the submission guidelines above so that you can send it to us in the correct format.

More information regarding the annual gathering can be found on the convention website at
