Welcome to our website!

Here you will soon find all the info you need. For now, you can get a glimpse of what we are planning, sign up to our mailing list, find ways to get in touch and read more about us.




We’ve had a very enthusiastic response from authors and publishers from all over the UK - we even had three emails from Canada. Now we are putting all this into a big pot, stir it thoroughly and voila, our programme will be fully cooked and ready to be served by 2nd March 2019 (no, that’s not really how it works, but sometimes it feels like that).

We SMASHED the crowdfunder.

YOU ARE AMAZING! We already knew the SFFH community is the best, but as they say, the proof is in the bank account. A big Thank you to all the amazing people that donated to our crowdfunding campaign. We stormed past our initial target, and then leapt over the stretch target and hit a phenomenal £5805. That means we have enough money to pay our venue, and to get some insurance, to bring writers to Edinburgh, feed our volunteers ….

Our SHORT FICTION competition is now open.

We want to discover new writing talent right here in Scotland! We are teaming up with @shoreinf to find fresh voices on our doorstep. If you are at least 14 years old & based in Scotland, enter our Prize for Speculative Short Fiction! More info here
