When I first joined Writers Victoria and started attending events, there was very little in the way of genre fiction covered. But over the years, the organisation has steadily increased its offerings.
Given that there are so many topics and genres out there, I don't envy WV the job of trying to cater to such diversity! Especially those genres that aren't as popular or mainstream as others. To be serious, and honest, I think the team at WV does an excellent job with what they put together each year, and the vast range of topics and genres they cover.
