Live at the Library with The Garret Podcast

Last month I had the absolute pleasure of speaking with The Garret Podcast live at the State Library of Victoria, alongside brilliant writers Clementine Ford (Fight Like a Girl and Boys Will Be Boys) and Alice Pung (Unpolished Gem, Her Father’s Daughter and Laurinda).

Our conversation, recorded live, is now available on The Garret website, alongside a transcription.

For those of you interested in writers, the writing process, and Australia’s incredibly rich literary culture, I really recommend you check out The Garret and their interviews with authors such as Markus Zusak, Shokoofeh Azar, David Marr, Chloe Hooper and Jane Harper.

Happy listening!

New Online Workshops

Exciting news! I'm really excited to have my workshop, Writing Historical Fiction, now up and available online with Kill Your Darlings!

I developed this course as a response to the questions I've been asked by those who want to write and research a work of creative fiction set in the past. While I loved teaching it in person, it meant that the course was limited to those based in Adelaide and Melbourne. Developing the workshop for an online platform means that people can now access it all over the world.

Rebecca Starford and I have also collaborated on a workshop, Getting Published, for those who want some inside information on how to prepare and submit your writing to agents and/or publishers. Rebecca (whose wonderful book, Bad Behaviour, was published in 2015) has also made her excellent workshop on writing memoir available.

All workshops are currently available for the special launch price of $99. Access them anytime, anywhere, for as long as you like.
