NZ Spec Fic Blogging Week

Many of you know I started this thing in New Zealand when I was there. I founded a national speculative fiction writing association, SpecFicNZ, because there wasn’t one. And every year we sponsor an event we call NZ SpecFic Blogging Week, a week when our members (and anyone else we can convince to come along for the ride) focus their blog posts on all things New Zealand and SpecFiccy.

To learn more about it, please head over to the SpecFicNZ website.

We welcome bloggers from all over the world to take a look at New Zealand speculative fiction and comment on what it has to offer. Don’t know who is writing Spec Fic in or from New Zealand? Do a google search and you mgiht be surprised.

New Zealand has become renownded as a location for shooting speculative fiction films. Don’t know which ones were filmed or digitally rendered in New Zealand? Take a look and you might  be surprised.

Ever wonder what it would be like to write from small island nation? What are the perks? What are the challenges? Follow our bloggin week and you just might find out.

We will be blogging September 19th through the 25th, and you can join us to link your blog posts or just follow and comment on the SpecFicNZ website.
