I’m heading off today to present a couple of workshops, as part of the Emerging Writers’ Festival, on social media for writers and readers. Looking forward to it, too, because it combines the two distinct parts of my life: my day job, which is all about online learning and training people in the web; and my writing self.
Late next week I return to Brisbane for the second part of my May Gibbs Children’s Literature Foundation fellowship, to start work on the redraft of The Sultan’s Eyes and also to run workshops as a writer in residence at the State Library of Queensland. Most of the workshops are for schools, but there are a couple of public sessions for younger readers/writers on Words that changed the world – subversive books and the forces that tried to stop them.
I can talk about that stuff for hours. And no doubt will.
