Byron Bay Writers' Festival

I'm pleased to announced that I will be a guest of the 2013 Byron Bay Writers' Festival. Running for three days over 2-4 August, the festival is known for its relaxed and friendly atmosphere and its focus on and staunch support of Australian writing and authors. Panel and individual sessions run in four marquees, and in venues around the town, and there are plenty of workshops available (anyone for a fiction masterclass with MJ Hyland, or insider tips from Catherine Deveny or Michael Robotham?).

Those interested in reading more about the Byron Bay Writers' Festival can visit the website here. 3-day, 2-day and single-day passes, as well as tickets to workshops and other events can be purchased here.

I will be appearing at the following sessions:
