KrimiCon Minicon on Saturday

The very active Tampere subdivision of the Finnish SF Writers Association will organize KrimiCon, a minicon with the theme “bandit romance in fantasy and speculative crime” this Saturday. There will be an opening speech about science fiction & criminology, a new issue of the Kosmospenaali fanzine, and a movie (Clive Barker’s Nightbreed). Everybody welcome.

Prerequisites are professional publication and prior teaching experience. Ph.D, MFA, MA in a relevant field or professional equivalent (at least two published books) required. Rank and salary are commensurate with education and experience.

An application letter, curriculum vitae, and the names and addresses of three referees should be submitted to:

Candidates may be asked to submit additional materials, including evidence of quality teaching, writing samples, and additional letters of recommendation, after initial review.
