There will be two Darrell Awards events at MidSouthCon 34, which will be held the weekend of March 18-20, 2016.
Darrell Panel on Saturday at 3pm
We will have a Darrell Awards panel at MidSouthCon 34 on Saturday, March 19, in Ballrooms D and E.
Participation in this panel is open to all 2016 Darrell Awards Finalists, as well as any past Winners or First-Runners Up or Finalists who are present. If your work has been recognized in any of these ways, please feel free to show up and be introduced to the crowd. You can tell us about the work or works that we’ve recognized, or about your plans for future work, or whatever floats your boat.
It’s just a chance for the readers to get to know some of “our” authors and for you to get to know some of your readers or potential readers.
This panel will run from 3pm to 4pm.
Awards Banquet on Saturday at 5pm
At 5pm, the Awards Banquet will be held. It is during the Banquet that the 2016 Darrell Awards will be presented for Best Short Story, Best Young Adult Work, Best Novella, and Best Novel, as well as the Coger Memorial Hall of Fame Award for Extraordinary Contributions to Midsouth Literacy.
If you are a 2016 Darrell Awards Finalist, you will have a free one-day Saturday-only pass to the convention and one free Banquet ticket waiting for you at convention Registration.
