The 2021 Aurealis Awards were presented at the Hellenic Club, Canberra Civic on Saturday night, 28th May. So very exciting to be mingling face-to-face again after a couple of years of online only events. Big thanks to Tehani, Jo, Nicole, Paula, Nathan, MC Craig & everyone else who made it happen. So much fun – photos here.

Thank you to the NSWWC for letting me loose to direct a second Speculative Fiction Festival last Saturday at the Centre’s beautiful grounds in Callan Park. Beautiful weather really enhanced the experience – I’m pretty sure a great day was had by all. Photos here. Publishing ArtsHub review here.
Had a fabulous time at the Conflux 12: Red Fire Monkey convention at the Canberra Novotel this weekend past. Check out my Flickr photoset! Here’s me with MC extraordinaire Sean Williams sneaking a quick drink before the closing ceremony. Photo by Alan Baxter.
