If you write or read historical fiction, here’s the conference for you.
The Historical Novel Society’s Australasian branch is holding the first ever historical novel conference in Sydney in March.
It’s a great program, with writers such as Posie Graeme-Evans, Toni Jordan, Kate Forsyth, Colin Falconer, Deborah Challinor, and Jesse Blackadder debating and discussing, and also running masterclasses such as research tips with Gillian Polack.
YA and children’s historical novelists include Pam Rushby, Sophie Masson, Felicity Pulman and Goldie Alexander. And me.
I attended the Society’s conference in London last year and it was wonderful to be in a room filled with people who love and understand your genre. So do come along if you can.
It’s on 20 – 22 March 2015, with the opening night debate (which I’m chairing) at the State Library of NSW and the day programs at the Balmain Town Hall.
All the details and program are on the HNSA website.
If you can’t make it, the hashtag is #HNSA2015.
