About Gateway Fur Meet
First, we would like to say thank you for taking an interest in submitting material to the GFM 2023 conbook! Our convention caters to the Furry Fandom, Science Fiction, and Fantasy communities (fans of fantasy creatures, and anthropomorphic animals) and is the first of its type in St. Louis, MO. The convention takes place in St. Louis, MO from March 15-17, 2023.
Gateway Fur Meet seeks submissions of artwork, photography, fiction, and articles for publication in its conbook. GFM asks for non-exclusive print rights for submitted works. The artist or author may publish the submitted work in any other fashion; previously, at the same time, and after.

The theme for our 2024 convention is “Murder Mystery Party” Submissions which complement this theme may be given priority. All submissions should be in the ‘G’ to ‘PG-13’ rating.
