GenreCon attendance

GenreCon is a new convention being held in Sydney on the 3rd and 4th of November 2012 (with an opening night cocktail party on the evening of the 2nd November). According to their blurb “GenreCon is a three-day convention for Australian fans and professionals working within the fields of romance, mystery, science fiction, crime, fantasy, horror, thrillers, and more. One part party, one part celebration, one part professional development: GenreCon is the place to be if you’re an aspiring or established writer with a penchant for the types of fiction that get relegated to their own corner of the bookstore.

The program for the weekend has been released and makes for interesting reading. There is a strong professional focus, with sessions designed for writers, general industry awareness and the business of writing.

I’ll be attending at least on the 3rd (competing commitments will drag me away for most of the 4th). If you’re planning to attend let me know by commenting below or contacting me directly – would love to meet up with those of you attending face to face!

A convention covering speculative fiction that is actually based in Sydney – very exciting!


Of course, it turns out that there is another writing event on Saturday 3rd November, the Emerging Writers’ Festival Roadshow being run at the NSW Writers Centre.  Would have liked to attend both!

A writer of speculative fiction and all round good egg. Well, mostly good. OK, sometimes good.
