Conflux Writers Day

So, have I mentioned that I’m one of the plenary speakers at the Conflux Writers Day in Canberra this April?

I haven’t made much of a fuss about this, mainly because *NERVES*… ahem. But you know, I think it’s going to be awesome, and I’m really excited to be involved. The theme of the day is ‘The Writers Journey’, which will be covered by four sub-themes – ‘Writing Skills’, ‘Writing Processes’, ‘Submission and Publication’ and ‘Building a Career’.

My theme is ‘Writing Skills’ and I’m going to talk about building working worlds from weird ideas. Because playing with ideas and shaping them into worlds and stories is what I love about writing the most! And it’s going to be fun, people, FUN! So much fun yours truly will totally forget to be nervous :)

The other plenary speakers are Kaaron Warren, Ian McHugh and Keri Arthur (and YES being in that company is probably responsible for most of my nerves!!) but there are a bazillion other presentations going on during the day, and I’m really looking forward to attending as many of them as I can. Oh yes, and then the Aurealis Awards is on!

Sound good? You can check it out and register and all that here. Come and join in the fun (and have a drink with me after, which I will surely need… maybe not at 11am but that evening, definitely!)
