The NSW Writers’ Centre is delighted to announce that our Speculative Fiction Festival will be held on Saturday 22 July 2017 and will be directed by multi award-winning author Cat Sparks.

Speculative fiction is a broad term encompassing science fiction, fantasy, horror, slipstream, steampunk, alternate history, new weird, supernatural, dystopian and a host of other subgenres besides. A literature of boundless imagination!

Cat is calling for both established and new voices keen to share insights and discuss aspects of all the genre has to offer. Submissions may come from authors, editors, publishers, agents, academics and others with a passion for all things fantastical.

Submissions must be a single A4 page or less, and include details of your publication experience, any upcoming releases around the time of the festival and suggested panel topics or specific areas of expertise.

Email submission to specficfest@gmail.com

Submissions open Tuesday 6 December and close Sunday 29 January

The program will be announced June 2017
