I’m excited to announce that The Galaxy Express will be hosting a two week long online event in July 2009 to coincide with the Romance Writers of America 29th Annual National Conference (Washington, D.C.).
The event will be called “Parallel Universe.” (Thanks to Laurie Green of Spacefreighters’ Lounge for coming up with the name.) It will be the virtual SFR gathering for those unable to attend the conference.
Beginning July 5, The Galaxy Express will feature a series of daily guest posts from authors and Skiffy Rommers on a variety of science fiction romance related topics. I’ll also bring you news directly from the conference courtesy of my correspondents—SFR bloggers who will be smack dab in the thick of things. I’ll be posting conference links as they relate to SFR and there might be a few surprises here and there as well.
I’ll be posting updates on Twitter using the hashtag #rwasfr and it would be great if anyone else tweeting science fiction romance news from the conference could join in using that same one.
If you’re going to be at the conference, one potential hotspot for SFR fans is The Gathering, hosted by the Fantasy, Futuristic, & Paranormal Chapter of RWA. The deadline to register for this event is July 10.
Until then, I’d like to offer up the comment section here for those who wish to announce that they are attending the conference in the hopes that SFR fans can connect with each other while there.
