The Fantastical Mirror: Science Fiction Across Boundaries


Science fiction is the 'mirror' genre, which gives a safe place to reflect on the world around us.

Yet, in Northern Ireland the genre does not have the visibility that might be expected.

This panel will explore what is happening in the genre locally and why it has not, as of yet, gained prominence in Northern Ireland.

Is it a lack of people writing the genre, a lack of visibility for those who do, or does infrastructure and how we support writing and writers have a part to play, too?
