CYMERA was created to fill a gap in the literary landscape for all those that want to get together to celebrate genre writing. We’re always looking for new ideas and new collaborators - it’s all about what YOU would like to see at the festival.*

So get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!

*within reason. And our budget.


Are you a writer of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror and you want to get involved in the festival? Email us on


We’ve already start programming for 2020 so drop us an email!


No sci-fi, fantasy and horror book festival would be complete without a dealer’s hall. We have 20 tables in ours, and we are hoping to fill them with local creators, be they writers, artists, publishers or anything in between. Application for the Creator’s Hall will open in March 2020.


We couldn’t do this without a team of volunteers! We’ll be “advertising” for festival weekend volunteers in April 2020, so join our mailing list or follow us on Social Media to hear about it.


We love talking about our plans, so drop us an email on . This is also the email for requesting press passes for the festival.


CYMERA is a unique opportunity to be part of something new and exciting, and reach readers and writers of Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror. There are many ways to support us, and we’re always happy to discuss this further. Please get in touch on
