I’m heading south for the Byron Way Writers Festival at the end of this month, hoping for the blissful Byron weather that the tent festival nearly always manages to delivers up. I’m looking forward to seeing Jeanette Winterson’s Keynote address on the Friday, as well as Maxine Beneba Clarke, Robert Hoge, and drifting into some other great sessions and conversations.
I’ll be teaching a workshop on my pet subject, Nature Writing, on Thursday 31 July. You can book in here .
I’m also participating in the following panels:
Books that Shaped Me, with ML Stedman, Lisa Gorton and Claire Scobie. 10.15-11.00am, Sat 2 August.
A Wide Brown Land: Writing Australia, with Tony Birch, Alex Miller and Ashley Hay. 11.30-12.30am, Sun 3 August.
In Conversation with Lisa Walker and Jessie Cole. 3.45-4.30pm, Sun, 3 August.
I’ll be signing copies of Mr Wigg and Nest (hot off the press) after each session.
