You’ll hear from authors about their challenges and advice on writing speculative fiction in its many publishable forms: short stories, novels and series. You’ll get to listen in and be part of the conversations taking place in the writing and publishing world about the trends and future of speculative fiction. And you’ll hear from editors and publishers about exactly what they’re looking to publish in the coming years.
