Speculative Fiction: Southeast

Toting an impressive celebrity roster, Dirty Little Bookers credits “Indie love” as their backdrop for the SF:SE inspiration board. Originally an Indie fiction review site, Dirty Little Bookers folded to community request and birthed the idea for the coolest Speculative Fiction party around, a celebrity-centric event focused on the exploration of publishing and networking, and the celebration of entrepreneurial passion.

SF:SE—Speculative Fiction: Southeast—is an event for all lovers and artists of Speculative Fiction, a term encompassing Horror, SciFi, Fantasy, Paranormal and Weird.

Speculative Fiction, according to Dictionary.com:

speculative fiction
1.a broad literary genre encompassing any fiction with supernatural, fantastical, or futuristic elements

SF:SE will be hosted at the Sheraton Orlando North in Maitland, Florida on September 25-27, 2015. Attendees will witness a marriage of cultures: conference standards such as workshops, panels and editor one-on-ones, together with convention debauchery like werewolf LARPing, masquerade balls and a tattoo gallery. All events to be shared with authorial greats like Orson Scott Card, Jacqueline Carey, Peter V. Brett, Kelley Armstrong, and a slew of industry icons.


Community is gold to the self-published writer. We have a wealth of resources just waiting to be discovered, and here’s an opportunity to pack them all into one party. And then blow the roof off,’ says Rachel Litt, SF:SE Conference Director. Litt says that SF:SE offers a kickstart to understanding an industry in which attendees hope to find a lifelong, profitable career.
