It’s that time of year again! Yep, Conflux is next weekend.
This con is very dear to my heart – and not just because it’s my local SFF con and always has really strong programming aimed at writers. But it is a great opportunity to hook up with my tribe. If you’re new on the Australian spec fic scene (like I was, once!) it is the best place to connect with people involved in the SFF writing community from across Australia – not just writers, but editors, agents, publishers, the whole shebang.
Anyway, here’s where you’ll definitely find me over the course of next weekend:
Friday, 28 September
From 6pm King O’Malley’s pub in Civic: Welcome drinks to Conflux 14.
Conflux 14, the Vibe Hotel, Canberra Airport
Saturday, 29 September
9am – Opening Ceremony
9.30am – Hero cliches & how to make or break them, with Ion “Nuke” Newcombe, Sam Hawke & Louise Pieper.
