I’m thrilled to say I’m appearing at the Emerging Writers’ Festival again this year! I’m participating in ‘Pop Topics’, a panel discussion on popular culture. It’s part of the main conference section of the festival (the National Writers’ Conference) and should be loads of fun, especially for me, since I’ll be able to publicly proclaim the merits of genre fiction and pop music. Tix are $45/$55 – expensive, but you get access to all the conference events that day (list here). The festival has a great program with stacks of incredible Aussie writers.
If you want to come along, please do, and support emerging writers in Australia! Here are the details:
“I have come here to chew bubblegum and talk about pop culture. And I’m all out of bubblegum!” What is it about pop culture that inspires us? These writers are no snobs and take the power of pop as serious as can be. Featuring Patrick Lenton, Julia Tulloh Harper and James Robert Douglas.
