Plus the Art Show and Dealers Room, which will be open throughout the con.

And that’s just what is happening onsite! Last year’s amazing Whiskeycon is on again.

There’s still room for more – so if you have an idea, pitch it and we’ll see what we can do. And if there are panels you are interested in doing, we can see if we have room there as well.

Otherwise – come along. Join the Conflux Family. We’d love to have you.

And that’s a wrap!

And that’s Conflux over for (at least) another year!

Thank you to everyone who came along and made it such a fab con. It wouldn’t be what it is without the wonderful community of people it draws on and that is you. Yes, you.

An especial thank you to our wonderful guests and MC: Ellen Datlow, Angela Slatter, Meri Amber and Kaaron Warren.

A huge thank you to everyone who volunteered their time and energy to participate in panels, or moderate the discussions; to our amazing workshop convenors; to the authors and publishers who launched their books at Conflux; to the publishers who took pitches; to the cosplayers who kept everything colourful; to the staff of the Hotel Vibe who where just awesome; and of course to the Conflux Committee who organised the whole thing and made it run so smoothly and the brave souls who have volunteered their time and energy to making the next Conflux happen.

As usual, you can relive all your Conflux memories by checking out Conflux on Instagram, or by checking out Cat Spark’s spectacular portfolio of Flickr pics.
