The very clever Conflux team, headed most ably by Nicole Murphy, have decided to run the inaugural Conflux Writers’ Day on Saturday April 5 – that’s the day of the Aurealis Awards, which are of course now hosted by the Canberrans!
The inaugural Conflux Writers Day will take place at University House, Australian National University, Canberra. For one day, Australia’s speculative fiction writers will gather for hours of professional development.
The theme of the day is ‘The Writers Journey’, which will be covered by four sub-themes – ‘Writing Skills’, ‘Writing Processes’, ‘Submission and Publication’ and ‘Building a Career’.
Four plenary speakers will be addressing these themes. These speakers are:
There will also be concurrent presentations bringing great thoughts and ideas to writers at all stages of their career.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend the day as I have to be at the CBCA Judging Conference, but I’ll look forward to hearing all about it after the Aurealis Awards that night!
