Context, New Zealand’s 32nd annual Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention, is this weekend (June 3rd to 6th) in Auckland.
And SpecFicNZ will certainly be there.
Member Helen Lowe is one of the guest authors, appearing all over the Context Program.
Two of our members, Ripley Patton and Grant Stone, will be offering workshops on short story writing at the Con on Saturday. They will both be doing panels and other program items as well.
SpecFicNZ will be having a Grand Meet-Up on Saturday evening at 5pm.
The meet-up will include a chance to win great give-aways for anyone who joins or renews membership there, and special joining and renewal rates for those in attendance.
Finally, we will be there to support our 9 members who have garnered 14 different final ballot nominations for the Sir Julius Vogel Awards. We fully expect several someones to bring home a nice shiny trophy.
For those of you who can’t attend, you will be missed, and we’ll be sure to let you know how the weekend went when we get back.
