Indie Fire is a brand new, UK-based writers conference that I am co-organising. It is dedicated to the world of independent publishing, focusing on the fantasy, science-fiction, and horror genres.
Indie Fire will be happening on Saturday 30th May 2020 at The Kirkgate Centre, Shipley, West Yorkshire.
The venue is a community centre with a great atmosphere and welcoming attitude to community-based events. It enables us to offer an intimate and friendly conference, encouraging attendance by people who might be intimidated by larger events.
That’s our main aim; to create a friendly event, where everyone is approachable, and feels secure in being themselves. And we want to give indies something that they can claim as their own, something that celebrates the indie path, rather than sidelining it.
Indie Fire will run throughout three rooms, and there will be a marketplace, with stalls selling books and goodies from indie authors and publishers. There will be a programme of workshops and panel discussions, led by our line-up of established and experienced guest authors. There will also be a special event that we will announce nearer the time.
We intend to make this inaugural event a strong and proven base for growing into one of the major events on the indie scene.
