Conferences & events

The HNSA hosts a major conference for historical fiction readers and writers every two years.

Our next biennial conference will be held in 2023.

HNSA will be introducing a short online program of workshops and chat salons during May-June 2022.

Subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to hear about the program.

Keep in touch on Twitter or Facebook, and subscribe to our newsletter for updates on our next conference and the ARA Historical Novel Prize.

You can also subscribe to our podcast, Imagining the Past. We often share recordings from previous conferences and events this way.

Local chapters also run events including author talks, social gatherings and reader events.

Join us on the HNSA Facebook Group where you can participate in all our discussions about historical fiction, new books, writing tips and more.

You can read more about historical fiction and the people who write it on News & Interviews.
