Melburnians, Canberrans, Sydneysiders: wouldn’t you love a weekend away?

WAM picWrite Around the Murray – Albury’s literary festival – kicks off on September 9. It seems like the perfect excuse for a weekend in regional Australia. This year they’re encouraging visitors to ‘take a journey to alternate worlds’, and featuring sessions on fantasy, sci-fi, climate change, astrophotography and illustration.

I’m taking part in three events:

  1. Viva la Novella launch (Friday afternoon): if you couldn’t make it to the announcement of the Viva la Novella winners last Friday, you’ve got a second chance – David Henley, Marlee Jane Ward and I will be talking about novellas and reading a bit of stuff. As a bonus, Howard Jones will be there too (maybe not that Howard Jones).
  2. When sci-fi becomes cli-fi (Saturday afternoon): Cat Sparks really knows her stuff on this topic, and she’ll be grilling me, James Bradley and Tim Flannery about hope, fear, humor, hubris, science, fiction and the future.
  3. Alternative publishing platforms (Sunday afternoon): David Henley, Danielle Binks and I will talk about all the different ways you might get your words out there so people can read them with their eyes.

Why not get out of town and have a look?
