Art Show

The OryCon Art Show brings together a diverse community of artists and craftspeople whose work is united in the common experience, and expression, of the fantastic. Graphical representations of worlds which exist only in our imaginations rendered in an array of media side by side with soft-sculptured dragons and daleks. Perhaps your tastes run toward mixed media delights. We've featured works using such arcane techniques as en-caustic, and taxidermy as well as collage and appliqué. Whether it's purely decorative or more practical, the Art Show is the place for the unique and the interesting.

Writer's Workshop

We are accepting submissions starting June 15th, 2016, through July 31st, 2016.

Submit your best work to the workshop just as you would submit your best work to an editor. Often a piece has problems that the author doesn’t know how to fix, and this is a good venue to explore solutions to those problems. On the other hand this is not a good venue in which to present problems that you already know are there, know how to fix and haven’t gotten around to eliminating. Critique time is precious and goes by very quickly. It’s best spent on problems that are unknown or difficult for you to solve rather than the problems you already know how to take care of.
