HNS Australasian Conference

We are delighted to announce that the next conference of the Historical Novel Society Australasia will be held on 25 to 27 October 2019, in historic Parramatta.

We’re equally delighted to announce our new partnership with Western Sydney University’s Writing & Society Research Centre and the School of Humanities & Communication Arts, which will host the conference on its Parramatta South campus. The Writing & Society Research Centre is committed to fostering public discussion around literature and writing and supports many community initiatives, particularly in western Sydney, including projects that encourage young and emerging writers and writers of immigrant background.

Now in its third year, the conference will once again feature leading and emerging writers from New Zealand and Australia, in a celebration of historical fiction for readers and writers.
