I have been working on designing the activities for OSFest this year and could really use your help. Of course I could come up with enough ideas to fill the three days of our festival but if I did would that be exactly what you want? We need to know what you would like to do before we can make the necessary arrangements. We will have panelists who are authors, voice actors, scientists, singers, artists, costumers, collectors, and long time fans of our genre. I am developing activities around man's presence in space; learning about how to do and appreciate artwork; collecting; making and using costumes; the business of writing and the fandom of writing; performances in both song and spoken words; and as many "how-to" activities as I can find DIY-ers for. But if what you want isn't filled by the activities or the panelists we have, we can find others if we can begin our search now, so drop me a line and let me know what you would like to see – or participate in.
Yes, you too can be a panelist if you have an area of expertise that would be interesting. The Omaha Science Fiction and Fantasy Festival is a SF/F convention with something for everyone and you are part of that everyone. What is it that makes you unique, or your group interesting? I want to share that with the fans in this area. I have room for discussions, workshops, demonstrations, and displays, so what would you like to do?
What kind of activities are we looking to attend? Activities that are writing related, media driven, artistically inclined, fan based, anime spawned, or scientifically motivated, where is your interest? That spans a very wide gap and if you have something that doesn't fit in any of those, maybe we need to develop a new category. We want your ideas; we want to bring you exactly what you want in a fun weekend. But you have to make that first step: get a membership, send us your ideas, then come and have a great time.
