I’m greatly looking forward to joining a panel on crime writing at the fourth annual Williamstown Literary Festival on Sunday 6 May 2007. The session will be chaired by inimitable Sisters in Crime convenor Carmel Shute, and my partners in crime writing on the panel are Garry Disher and Adrian Hyland. Garry is an inspiration and Adrian is hilarious, so it promises to be a fun and insightful session.
The Williamstown Literary Festival prides itself on being a participatory cultural event focusing on literature, drama and writing. It showcases what the website refers to as “established and emerging writers”–that would be Garry Disher among the former and me and Adrian among the latter.
[As an aside, Garry was on the judging panel the year Thai Died (published as Behind the Night Bazaar) won me the Victorian Premier’s Award for unpublished manuscript.]
The Festival runs from Friday 4 May to Sunday 6 May 2007 at the Williamstown Town Hall, and our crime writing session will take place on the Sunday afternoon. See the Festival website for more information. And stay tuned to this site for a de-brief.
