Hi there, I've seen another poster on here asking about a writing convention in Aspen, and that got me thinking, "Writing Convention? I should really go to one, considering I'm a writer!" But what I'm asking is this: I don't have enough money to fly or go anywhere apart from the UK, and I was wondering if anyone knew of some writing conventions coming up either this year or next year. They can be big or small, but I would just like to get a general idea (and maybe talk to some publishers and agents!). I did do a quick search and found out that the World Fantasy Convention is taking place in Brighton this year, so I will go to that as a reader and general writer, but I will have finished my post-apocalyptic book by then and wouldn't mind talking to some people about it (31st Oct- 3rd Nov). Would post-apocalyptic count as fantasy (please be aware that there's nothing like mutants in it, but there is, I suppose, a general feeling of 'otherworldliness')? Sorry for the long post; answer away!
