Clarion West Speculative Fiction Trivia Night is back in 2020!

This is our second trivia fundraiser to support our writing workshops and our efforts to ensure inclusive and accessible workshops—online and in-person.

Donations tracker: $3,302 / $5,000!




Join a team:

$5 Join any team—we’ll place you on a team of like-minded speculative fiction fans (bragging rights went to one of these teams last year!).

$15 Join a team with one of our celebrity team captains!

$45 Bring your own team. Up to a maximum of 12 players. Have all your geekiest friends in one place for a chance to earn your super powers.

Teams will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis. Featuring video clues and questions from celebrity guests! This annual event will be held online; no googling the answers, or you’ll be shown to the airlock.

By participating in any Clarion West activity, you are agreeing to our Code of Conduct, the Clarion West Harassment Policy, and our Zoom Guidelines.


How many players can be on a team?

Maximum 12 players per team. There is no minimum number of players for a team, but we recommend small groups join a random team. You can stay together by indicating each other in the notes field during your payment process or emailing us at communications@clarionwest.org. Or you can pay together.

What if I want to play with a friend?

If you wish to play with a friend who is paying separately, place their name in the notes field when you make your payment. You can also pay for up to 4 players together.

How will we play trivia online?

Trivia Night will be played via Zoom. Upon entry, we will check-in with you and place you in a break-out room with your team. You will spend the majority of the event in the break-out room. Teams will watch questions streamed live and fill answers via forms. Your Zoom link and more specific information will be shared prior to the event.

Can we Google the responses?

Trivia Night is a fundraiser and community builder, the prize is bragging rights! Please play by the rules and do not google your responses. We are relying on the honor system that your team will come up with the answers using only the power of your minds.

Are there minimum age requirements to enter the event?

For the best experience for all, we recommend age 18 and older. If you have a question about the minimum age requirement, please email us at communications@clarionwest.org.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please email any questions to: communications@clarionwest.org. We respond faster to emails than questions via social media channels.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn’t match the person who attends?

If you are signing up for someone else, please indicate this during registration or send an email to communications@clarionwest.org and tell us your information and the name, email, and contact information for the person you are registering for. Clarion West does not share contact information with any other organization.

I don’t want to play, but I’ll make a donation to Clarion West, where can I donate?
