  • Product Description

    The Australian Writers Marketplace presents the 2015 GenreCon – the biennial writer’s conference for emerging and established writers and editors of fantasy, crime, romance, mystery, thrillers, horror, and more.

    GenreCon gives you a chance to connect with some of Australia’s most knowledgeable genre professionals, including Kylie Scott, Marianne DePierres, Kaaren Warren, and Angela Savage. Come expand your network as you meet over 200 emerging and established authors, meet with professionals wiling to talk candidly about the ways they built their careers, and pitch your works to editors and publishers from around Australia.

    GenreCon is a catered conference, providing morning tea, afternoon tea, and lunch on the Saturday and Sunday. Your conference registration gets you into all discussion panels over the GenreCon weekend, in addition to giving you the opportunity to secure spots in the GenreCon workshop and pitching program.

    As usual, the conference will feature two additional ticketed events: the opening night reception and the conference banquet on Halloween. GenreCon runs from October 30 – November 1st.

    Registration for the 2015 GenreCon will close on Sunday, 25 October. Tickets will not be available at the door.
