If you have a talent for crafting beautiful prose or elegant poetry with nerdy themes, we’d love to feature you at the show! There are a few different ways to be involved with the show. Explore the options below and find out how to share your passion with Origins attendees!

Exhibit Hall

The Exhibit Hall is sold out for Origins 2019. Applications for Origins 2020 will open up June 17, 2019. Please email with any questions.


Each year, Origins offers a limited edition anthology featuring stories from authors exhibiting at the show. This gives authors an opportunity to showcase their skill and imagination and inspire conversations with attendees looking for signatures and souvenirs. These anthologies are sold at the Origins Merch booth and at participating authors’ booths.

Origins University

We are always looking for passionate presenters to hold seminars and classes in Origins University. Submissions are closed for this year, but start thinking about your ideas for Origins 2020!
