Coming soon to a festival near you (Part 3)

Winter is here, possibly the best time of year for reading and talking about books. Early next month, I’ll be doing just that in Geelong at an ‘Author Encounter’ with Sarah Hopkins, talking about her latest novel, The Subjects, an eerie depiction of the over-criminalisation and overmedicalisation of young people in the juvenile justice system. I started reading The Subjects last night and already I’m hooked. This free event will be held on Wednesday 3 July, 6.30-7.30pm, Geelong Library & Heritage Centre. Book here.

As the season of literary festivals continues across Victoria and beyond, I’ll be appearing at the Warm Winter Words Festival in Apollo Bay on Sunday 28 July. I’m delivering a workshop on Crime Writing from 10.00AM-12.00PM. This is a workshop I really enjoy teaching, which covers the history and conventions of crime fiction, the rules of the genre (and how to break them), and the essential elements of premise, character, plot and pace. Early and emerging writers, as well as established writers turning to crime as a new genre, are all welcome. There’s a Facebook event with details here and tickets are available here.

On Sunday afternoon, I’ll be appearing as part of Warm Winter Words with Anna Snoekstra, Bram Presser and Mark Brandi, celebrating 30 years of Writers Victoria in the process. I’m delighted to be sharing the floor with three writers whose work I admire so much. Event details here and tickets here.
