Outspoken in Maleny
Having just spent several days having a rather fabulous time in Perth for the Perth Writers’ Festival, I’m about to head off again, this time to Queensland, to be part of the Outspoken Festival in Maleny.
As Festivals go, Outspoken is a relatively unusual one, taking the form of a season of monthly one-on-one interviews with writers, but I’m really thrilled to be a part of it, both because I’ve never been to Maleny (which is famously beautiful) and because the person doing the interviewing is the novelist Steven Lang, whose work I’ve known and admired for some time.
The event is in the Maleny Community Centre at 6:00pm next Wednesday, 16 March. Tickets are available from the Maleny Bookstore, 2/41 Maple Street, Maleny, or by phone on 07 5494 3666. If you live in the area it’d be great to see you.
