Brisbane Writers Festival coming up
Main news—I'll be there! I'll be there for two days of Word Play with the younger readers of Brisbane and surrounds, talking about how to think like an animal, build a fantasy world and write a short story.
Here's the Festival's text about themselves:
If you're in that part of the country, come along and get wordy, eh.
Brisbane Writers Festival 2011
7–11 September 2011
Readers, writers and ideas-makers from around the world join Queensland and Australian voices in conversations covering fiction to food writing, science to sustainability, and everything in between.
Share stories of adventure, history, music and memoir with your favourite writers, and discover new names along the way at a range of writer talks, book readings and feature events.
Indulge your inner-writer with creative and industry workshops for everyone from the novice to the experienced professional.
Relax with friends in air-conditioned venues, open-air tents and balmy spaces, or simply sit back with a new book and enjoy a coffee or drink at the Breezeway beer garden.
