Wednesday, November 22, 2017

I am thrilled to be appearing this Saturday (November 25) at the State Library of Queensland for their inaugural Young Writers Conference. Here's what it's all about:
Come along for a day of industry seminars and hands-on writing workshops for young writers, led by young authors and publishing professionals.
If you’re aged 15 to 25 and interested in the art of writing and the how-to of getting published in Australia, the Young Writers Conference will excite, inform and inspire you. 
With sessions designed to expand your knowledge, accelerate your craft, and provide advice and support for getting ahead in the business of writing, this is your opportunity to learn from some of Australia’s finest young creators in an inclusive and interactive environment. 
Featuring Lech Blaine, Steph Bowe, Shastra Deo, Laura Elvery, Mindy Gill, Jerath Head, Rebecca Jessen, Bri Lee, Grace Lucas-Pennington, Grace McCarter, Jackie Ryan, Kristina Schulz.
I'll be appearing on a panel and running a workshop on the day:
