Writers Unleashed

On Saturday I attended the Writers Unleashed Festival in Sutherland Shire. It was a fantastic festival, providing the opportunity to hear from some very talented writers, including the hilarious James Roy, Suzanne Gervay, Emma Quay and Libby Gleeson.

We also heard from a panel of publishers on what’s hot and what’s not right now in the world of children’s literature. In Middle Grade fiction and in YA it is smart, stand alone fiction, for strong readers, with a unique voice, strong characters and a funny or clever edge that is exciting publishers right now. Particularly contemporary fiction with strong friendship themes, and of course a bit of romance never goes a miss. (Sounds just like my novel!! ;))

What made this festival really special, however, was that I was able to share it with many of my writers group, Picture This, pictured at the festival below. It is wonderful to be a part of such a talented and supportive group!
