Call for Contributors – Historical Novel Society Conference


Are you a published author, editor, agent, or other genre expert who can speak about your experience? Would you be interested in serving as a moderator or organizing a panel for our 2011 Conference? If you can answer “yes” to any of these questions, we’d like to hear from you.

Our 4th North American conference will be held in San Diego, California, on June 17-19, 2011, at the Holiday Inn on the Bay. This weekend-long event will feature workshops, panels and keynote addresses on various aspects of fiction set in the past, and will present authors, readers, industry professionals and other historical fiction enthusiasts with a unique opportunity to celebrate the genre. We hope to provide a stimulating, thought-provoking program that touches on many aspects of historical fiction.

Author guests of honor will be Cecelia Holland and Harry Turtledove, with a Saturday lunch keynote by Jennifer Weltz of the Jean V. Naggar Literary Agency.

Conference registration will open in November 2010.
