Here are a few events I will be speaking at very shortly! Come see me and say hi!
7th of July
This Saturday I'll be in Brisvegas! At the Children's and Young Adult Writers And Illustrators Conference. It's on at the Southbank Institute of Technology from 8AM to 5PM. There are lots of really great and intelligent writer types (just have a look at the website) speaking to other writer types about writing and associated topics! This is the program. I'm doing a workshop about secondary characters, and I have never done that before. I promise to be brilliant, and if I'm not, everyone will be compensated with fairy bread. Only not really. I believe they're still taking bookings!
8th of July
The Australian Society of Authors is having an 'E-Exchange' forum at the Queensland Writers' Centre at the State Library of Queensland, from 10.45AM until 5PM. I'm talking about blogging! Here's the program. Other smart people are talking about things like digital publishing and working across platforms and POD and ebook stuff! The future is great. You can book here, if that sounds like your sort of thing.
11th to 14th of July
I'm at the Whitsunday Voices Youth Literature Festival, for which I am very excited. Because, hello, Whitsundays. Also festivals are great. According to the website... Held in Mackay, Queensland, Whitsunday Voices is the largest youth literature festival in North Queensland. Boasting an impressive line up of Australia's favourite authors, Whitsunday Voices Youth Literature Festival is attended by over 5000 students every year. You can download the program from their website.
I have other events coming up, which I will be sure to tell you all about closer to the fact. And feel free to email me and pester to me to visit your town/school! Any excuse to have a holiday!
