    Yes the website isn’t really a great advertisement for the Conclave is it, LOL. There is a Facebook page where some discussions are happening around panels etc: https://www.facebook.com/groups/259297837528528/321605271297784/?notif_t=group_activity
    It seems a little up in the air at the moment, but hopefully we’ll get a full programme soon.

    Congratulations, Tim – may you have many sales and make millions!

    How about some SF/F poetry? Flash fiction or shorter shorts would be welcome too for those of us trying to fit novels around our jobs!

    • Thanks Freya – you make a very good point about competitions aimed at writers with less time to dedicate to them. We’ll definitely start working on some ideas based around shorter wordcounts.

    Yeah I’d love to have gone to the Writer’s Conference but the budget won’t extend to more than one night’s stay! I look forward to your panel, and the one on world building should be interesting. It’s probably too late for me to join anything but maybe next year in Rotorua!

    • If you’re going to be around, it’d be great to squeeze you onto a panel, and I’m sure that they’ll be looking for people to do so. Drop me an email (rabarts AT gmail DOT com) and I’ll put you in the loop with Eileen and Jacqui who are co-ordinating things.

    I very much look forward to meeting you, Dan, as I’ve seen your name around a lot linked with F/SF in NZ 😉 It’ll be interesting to see what panels etc are around. I’ve never been to a convention so it will be an experience for me, and I’m looking forward to connecting with others who write in the genre. Should be fun!

    • Cool. Eileen Mueller has been putting together some panel suggestions for the Con Com, but I don’t think anything has been published yet. I should be appearing on a panel on Collaborative Writing, and there’s been talk about world-building, ebook formatting and production, and more. There’s also a “Writer’s Conference”, but that’s being held on…[Read more]

    Hi Darusha, I look forward to meeting you and everyone else from the society. A meet up on Saturday would be great as that’s the day I’ll be there!

    Sorry you won’t be there, Marie, but hopefully we can connect in this new forum!

    Hi everyone! Just trying out the new system to see how it works. Anyone on here going to the Conclave 2 convention in April? I haven’t been before, so I’m looking forward to it. Looking forward to connecting with a few of you, too. Writing is a lonely business and it’s always nice to talk to others!

    • Hi Freya! I’m afraid I won’t be making it to this year’s Con but I know some of the Baby Teeth crew are going to be there.

    • Hi, Freya.

      I’ll probably be there and it looks like there will be at least a half-dozen SpecFicNZers there (probably more). Some folks are trying to organize some writers’ panels and a meet-up for the Saturday.

      • Hi Darusha, I look forward to meeting you and everyone else from the society. A meet up on Saturday would be great as that’s the day I’ll be there!

    • Hey Freya, I’ll be there Saturday, and there’s a lot of chatter going on about a few panels and social gatherings, along with book signings and suchlike, with as many local writers as we can pull together. Be good to catch you there, too!
