And so there is this, GenreCon, which is an initiative of the Australian Writer’s Marketplace, and is being shaped and force into submission by Peter M. Ball’s organisational skills. It’s running from 2-4 November this year in Sydney.
What is it precisely?
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.
