What’s happening in the months of August and September

Firstly, this Friday the 16th at 2pm Mosman Library, I will be interviewing debut writer Nina Kenwood about her new novel It Sounded Better in My Head. Loved. Loved. Loved it. I have so many novels to read at the moment and all I do is look at the pile, but this morning I woke up at 5 and didn’t get out of bed until after 9. It’s funny and smart and it’s recharged my reading inertia (only because I’m tired and not because of the novels).


Below are three of the festivals I’ll be attending this month and next. Click onto the links and it will take you to my page.

The Blue Mountains Writers’ Festival

The Melbourne Writers’ Festival


The Brisbane Writers Festival


On another note, discussing my writing on the Better Reading podcast with Cheryl Arkle was a highlight for me this year. I was asked to come back for “Better Reading On Writing”. It’s a 6 part series and I get to speak about Dialogue. We all focus on a different aspect of the craft. The other writers are: Trent Dalton (The writer); Belinda Alexander (character builiding); Candice Fox (research and setting) ; Dervla McTiernan (story and plot development) and Penguin Random House Publisher, Nikki Christer (she published Dalhousie and discusses the publishing side of things)

If you’re interested in writing then I think you’ll find it very helpful.
