The HNSNA Announces Its First Ever Mini-Conference!

Two years is a long time to wait between HNSNA conferences, and our virtual conference showed us that we can still connect and inspire even when we can’t be together in person. So on July 23, 2022, historical fiction novelists and enthusiasts can join us online for A Taste of HNSNA!

Watch this space for more information about special guests, workshops, and opportunities to connect!
