Hi there, thought I’d put together a list of the conferences I know about so that readers/fans and writers can plan to attend if they know about them. This may not be a complete list and I would appreciate an update that I will post on social media if you get me the information. Thank you to those who have contributed and I’ll try to keep this list current, perhaps placing it on the Lesfic Bard Awards website permanently and cross-posting.
