Silver Words in Hobart every month – what a great way to either listen to others or present your own work. A very supportive audience in a venue (Quartermasters in Elizabeth Street) with wonderful ambience (and a good place to stay warm in winter!). I had the opportunity to read from my young adult novel, May Day Mine recently. With Max Bladel at the helm, this event is well worth checking out.
Brilliant session with David Owen recently at the Tasmanian Writers Centre on character. So thorough, organised and interesting. I waited with bated breath for every book he picked up from the table to explain in more detail about the way character was developed and delivered. His takeaway list of titles gives hours of reading pleasure in the future! Thanks David.
