Who we are

The CSFG is an  association for Canberra-based creators of speculative fiction. Our goal is to support and provide development opportunities for our members as they move from aspiring, to published, to professional makers of spec-fic.

What we do

The CSFG offers services to members including regular workshops, publishing opportunities, and a members’ forum.

Join us

CSFG membership is available for people in Canberra and elsewhere. Joining is as simple as agreeing to our community rules, reviewing membership fees, then popping along to one of our regular meetings or participating in our online community.
