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.


WRITERS

Are you a writer of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror and you want to get involved in the festival? Email us on programme@cymerafestival.co.uk We’ll be looking for writers to fill our open mic slots!

Are you an emerging writer based in Scotland? Then our Short Fiction competition is for you. More info here

PUBLISHERS

Our programme is now finished but there are other opportunities to get involved. Drop us an email to find out about sponsoring an event, flyering or goodie bags.

LOCAL CREATORS

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. More info here.

VOLUNTEERS

We couldn’t do this without a team of volunteers! We’ll be “advertising” for festival weekend volunteers in April 2019, so join our mailing list or follow us on Social Media to hear about it.

PRESS

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

SPONSOR

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 support@cymerafestival.co.uk
