The World Fantasy Convention is a professional networking event that regularly attracts several hundred of the top authors in the field every year. Editors, agents, critics and PR professionals make up the bulk of the rest of the attendees. We have provided a press pack (PDF) including a list of named authors available for interview and information about local events that our members will attend.
The convention is also home to the World Fantasy Awards, one of the world’s top awards for speculative fiction. These are presented at a gala banquet on the Sunday afternoon. Opportunities for press coverage will be available.
