SHERATON ORLANDO NORTH SEPTEMBER 25-27, 2015
SF:SE hits Orlando this September: Dropping a wicked footprint on con culture.
Toting an impressive celebrity roster, Dirty Little Bookers credits ‘Indie love’ as their backdrop for the SF:SE inspiration board. Originally an Indie fiction review site, Dirty Little Bookers folded to community request and birthed the idea for the coolest Speculative Fiction party around, a celebrity-centric event focused on the exploration of publishing and networking, and the celebration of entrepreneurial passion.
SF:SE—Speculative Fiction: Southeast—is an event for all lovers and artists of Speculative Fiction, a term encompassing Horror, SciFi, Fantasy, Paranormal and Weird.
Speculative Fiction, according to Dictionary.com:
SF:SE will be hosted at the Sheraton Orlando North in Maitland, Florida on September 25-27, 2015. Attendees will witness a marriage of cultures: conference standards such as workshops, panels and editor one-on-ones, together with convention debauchery like werewolf LARPing, masquerade balls and a tattoo gallery. All events to be shared with authorial greats like Orson Scott Card, Jacqueline Carey, Peter V. Brett, Kelley Armstrong, and a slew of industry icons.
‘Community is gold to the self-published writer. We have a wealth of resources just waiting to be discovered, and here’s an opportunity to pack them all into one party. And then blow the roof off,’ says Rachel Litt, SF:SE Conference Director and founder of Dirty Little Bookers. Litt says that SF:SE offers a kickstart to understanding an industry in which attendees hope to find a lifelong, profitable career.
Indie authors may also participate in SF:SE programming, by submitting online or in-person at the Dirty Little Bookers Pitch Slam (Boca Raton). Select winners will receive a table at SF:SE, free weekend registration, a panel seat, a scheduled reading/signing and a VIP party invitation (21 and over).
