Speculate 2019 - Speculative Writers Festival

Do you write speculative fiction? Do you delight in vampires, werewolves and zombies oh my! Do you expand your brain to intergalactic epics? Do you want to be the next Amie Kaufman?

Well then I think Speculate Writers Festival might by the place for you!

What is Speculate?

Speculate is a festival for writers of speculative, horror, fantasy and science fiction, from any and all backgrounds. Whether you’re plotting your first short story or doing line edits on your next horror trilogy – Speculate is the place for you to connect and grow with other science fiction and fantasy writers.

When is Speculate?

Speculate 2019 will take place over two days in Melbourne at Gasworks Arts Park, Graham Street, Albert Park, on Friday, March 15 and Saturday, March 16.

Friday will be focused on craft and the publishing journey. There are two all day workshops to help writers hone their work and identify pathways to publishing. It’ll be a smaller day, with chances to mingle and network outside workshops as well.

Saturday will be the marquee day with large group sessions in Gasworks’ main theatre, and there’ll be plenty of chances to connect with other writers from around Victoria and Australia.
