National Young Writers Festival Australia (NYWF)

At the end of this week I’m heading to Newcastle, NSW, to attend the National Young Writers’ Festival and this is a fabulous write-up about it from the wonderful Paris Lee (who I’m thrilled to be meeting up with again there – I first met her in Melbourne at Supanova earlier this year, and then I saw her again in Sydney in July, so it’ll be fabulous to catch up with her in Newcastle as well! I think we’re actually aiming to film an author Q&A so stay tuned for that in the coming weeks!).

If you happen to be in the Newcastle region later this week, please do stop by and say ‘hi’! This reblogged post lists the two panels I’m speaking on (‘Women Kicking Arse’ and “YA Genre: Ahead of the Curve’) as well as mentions the World Building Workshop I’ll be delivering.

It’ll be great to meet some of you if you manage to pop by! And check out the festival website to see more of the other incredible attending writers!
