Donations & Sponsorship Opportunities
The World Fantasy Convention (WFC) has been held since 1975 as an annual gathering and reunion of professionals, collectors, and others interested in the field of light and dark fantasy art and literature. The four-day convention includes comprehensive programming geared toward professionals and enthusiasts in the genre and also offers a high-quality art show and a dealers’ room. The culminating event is the World Fantasy Award ceremony and banquet, where the coveted award is bestowed on the previous year’s best fantasy literature and on individuals whose work has helped to define and shape the genre.

AN OPPORTUNITY FOR PUBLISHERS, AUTHORS & ARTISTS

You may donate as few or as many copies as you would like. The number of items donated does not have to total 1000 and can be composed of several titles. Any fantasy-related material you wish to donate will be of great help to the convention. Sign up to send books HERE!
