The Post-Meridian Radio Players presents Trouble with Tribbles

Artist and Author Alley

Arisia invites you to become a part of Arisia's Artist & Author Alley. The Alley is designed for creators to showcase and sell their personal works, and allow our members to meet the people who created them. This can be art, books (self-published or start-up presses with only a few books), games, or almost anything else. You can do signings, sales, (non-messy) demos, or just chat to people from your Alley table. Each 6’ x 30” Alley table is sold in 4- or 5-hour slots (depending on the day), in an area near our Dealers Room.

Letter to Program Participants

We're putting this up on the web because a bulk mail failure meant it did not reach all the recipients. We'll be following up as soon as possible with additional status updates. As soon as the problem gets fixed, we will make the appropriate extension of the deadline.

To all potential Arisia Program Participants:

Thank you to those who have bid on panels thus far.
