Calling all writers at all stages of the writing journey!

I am thrilled to be joining the 2019 Nash Agency Writers Retreat in February, alongside Rachael Johns, Haylee Nash and Alex Adsett. This inspiring and informative retreat is being held at the Cedar Creek Lodges in the rainforest of Tamborine in the Gold Coast hinterland.

The retreat includes writing masterclasses from myself and Rachael, publishing and pitching guidance from Haylee and Alex, as well as critiques of your work and assistance to polish your pitch to an industry professional, all while enjoying three-night’s individual accommodation with fireplaces and all meals.

This will be a supportive, fun and challenging space to allow you to grow as a writer.

The retreat runs from 11-14 February.

I can’t wait and hope to see you there!

P.S. I’m bringing chocolate and tea to my masterclass! 🙂

Literary Luncheon, Surfer’s Paradise, 26th May

Hello lovelies,

If you find yourself within driving distance (or hey, maybe even flying distance!) to Surfer’s Paradise next month, you might like to join me and fellow author Jenny Old at a literary luncheon at the Hilton hotel. Better yet, you can now make a weekend of it with a special discount package for accommodation if you’d like to stay over.

And best of all, the luncheon is hosted by VIEW, who funnel their fundraising activities into supporting the wonderful Australian charity, The Smith Family, whose aim is to ensure every child in Australia is able to access everything they need to have a quality education, regardless of their family’s financial circumstances.

I happen to sponsor a child through The Smith Family so I am delighted to be appearing here at this event.

We will have a chance to chat, books will be on sale and Jenny and I will be happy to sign them of course.

All the details are contained in the images below. Click on them for a larger view. Get your mum, sister, bestie on board and come and join us.
