Detail from Kathy Holowko’s ‘Batmania’, featured at Write Around the Murray.
Just a quick note to say that if you’re in the Riverina I’ll be appearing at Write Around The Murray in Albury on the weekend of 12-13 September. The full program was announced a couple of weeks ago, and features a bunch of fantastic people, but if you’d like to catch me I’ll be discussing ‘When Sci-Fi becomes Cli-Fi’ with Jane Rawson, Cat Sparks and Tim Flannery at 1:00pm on Saturday 12 September, and at 3:00pm on Sunday 13 September I’ll be in conversation with Jason Steger as part of Write Around the Murray’s Big Book Club. Both events are at LibraryMuseum, Corner of Kiewa and Swift Streets, Albury, and you can RSVP online.
And just a reminder that I’ll be appearing at Melbourne Writers Festival this weekend and Brisbane Writers Festival the weekend after.
Just a quick note to say I’m speaking this Sunday at the Emerging Writers’ Festival in Sydney. I’m sure the EWF, which brings together new writers and more established literary professionals (their term, not mine!) will be familiar to many of you already, whether by virtue of their program of online events, their various Melbourne-based events at the Wheeler Centre or their Reader, but Sunday’s event, which is presented in conjunction with the NSW Writers’ Centre, this will be the first time the EWF, which brings together new writers and literary professionals (their term, not mine!), has had a Sydney presence. I’m speaking about writing for Australian and international markets at 12:00pm with Leah Greengarten and Tim Sinclair, but you can check out the full program, which also features P.M. Newton, Emily Maguire, Kathryn Heyman, Sam Twyford-Moore and Mark Mordue on the NSW Writers Centre website. You can also follow EWF on Twitter for updates about future events, online and off.
