“Reading was my escape and my comfort, my consolation, my stimulant of choice: reading for the pure pleasure of it, for the beautiful stillness that surrounds you when you hear an author’s words reverberating in your head.” ― Paul Auster, The Brooklyn Follies
For readers, there is nothing quite as magical as hearing a story or poem told in the author’s own voice, to have those words ‘reverberate in your head’, allowing the listener to gain some insight into the writer’s intent for a character or understanding of the intended pacing and atmosphere.
For those interested in presenting a reading at StokerCon®2021, all readings this year must be prerecorded with the possible exception of the Guests of Honor. If you would like a reading slot, make sure to indicate that on your programming survey response. You received a link to this survey in the welcome email sent when you registered. Only registered StokerCon attendees may submit a reading.
Since they are pre-recorded, attendee readings will be available on-demand throughout the convention.
Reading segments should be fifteen minutes with a maximum length of twenty minutes. Any readings longer than twenty minutes will be declined. This is due to practical limitations on file size and processing time.
In the coming weeks, we will send instructions to registered attendees on the method by which you can submit your reading.
Forward any questions to Brian Matthews at [email protected].
