My participation includes:
- "Regeneration" Book Launch, Friday 6pm, L-Space
- Non-normative Bodies in Science Fiction, Saturday 10am, L-Space, with Anna Caro
A discussion on how speculative fiction depicts disabled bodies, fat bodies, gender-diverse
bodies and other real world deviations from the assumed default.
- Trends in Short SFF/H, Sunday 10am, L-Space, with Marie Hodgkinson and Dan Rabarts
Short fiction is a rapidly changing market. Long gone are the days when print
anthologies and magazines were the only place to get your stories published. Join some of
the heavyweights of New Zealand's short fiction writing market to learn how the rise of the
ezine, podcast, and social media have changed the short fiction landscape, and how you can
tap into the power of new media streams to get your work out there.
- SpecFicNZ Meet Up 4pm, followed by AGM 5pm, The Throne Room

And dudes - Wheaton's First Law applies: Don't Be a Dick.
