I am, of course, one of the Ambassadors for this year's Emerging Writers' Festival in Melbourne.
In that capacity I will be swanning about everywhere, so do make sure you come and say hello if you catch sight of me on the weekend of the 25th & 26th May. I am also doing a couple of specific events, and here are the details:
Seven Enviable Lines
Date: Saturday 25 May, 10am – 11am
Venue: Swanston Hall, Melbourne Town Hall
Price: FREE with Writers’ Conference Pass
Our Festival Ambassadors share the writing advice they wish they had known when they were starting out – in the form of seven incisive tips – that will provide guidance when you next sit down to write.
With KHARIANI ‘OKKA’ BAROKKA, MELINDA HARVEY, WALTER MASON, JENNIFER MILLS, JOHN SAFRAN. Hosted by SAM TWYFORD-MOORE.
Writing the Personal, Saturday 25 May 3pm
Blogs… Memoir… Biography… how does one write about oneself while making it interesting to others? What kinds of skills or techniques are required? These writers will give you the benefit of their wisdom about sharing the personal.
With ANNA POLETTI, WALTER MASON, LUKE RYAN and FIONA WRIGHT. Hosted by LILY MAE MARTIN
The Control Room
Step into The Control Room where you are in control of the conversation. We put the writer in a room and let you ask the questions. There is no host, no compere and no mediator. It’s all audience driven and a fantastic opportunity to get direct access to a writer. They bring the experience, you bring the questions.
Sunday 26th May 10am – WALTER MASON on self-help literature, travel writing and social media
