News / Call for applications for the Speculative Fiction Festival 2019!


Our Speculative Fiction Festival will be back in 2019! Send us your panel ideas and apply to be a speaker before midnight on Sunday 9 December.


Writing NSW is excited to announce that our biennial Speculative Fiction Festival will be taking place on 29 June 2019! Speculative fiction author, editor and publisher, Keith Stevenson, will be the festival director.

Speculative fiction is the stuff of dreams and nightmares, encompassing science fiction, fantasy and horror in all its guises: near-future dystopia, far-flung space exploration and alien encounters, sword and sorcery adventure, tales of magic and wizardry, bone-chilling urban horror and the madness of the surreal.

We’re looking for panel ideas and speakers that are as diverse as the literature itself. Your panel topics will delve into all aspects of creating speculative fiction narratives, and you’ll be an emerging or established writer, or an editor, publisher or agent working in the speculative fiction field.

The festival will take place next year on the grounds of Writing NSW in Callan Park, Sydney.

Apply through our application form before 11.59pm AEST on Sunday 9 December.
