Representatives from our writing groups will be here to tell you more about how their sessions run and what makes their groups unique. They will also share the secrets to their success with those in the audience who are keen to start a new group.
The evening includes a keynote presentation from Shelly Unwin, writer and member of the Picture This writing group, who will share her experiences on being part of a writing community.
The event will be followed by networking drinks, courtesy of Bibliotheque Wines.
Shelly is making her authorial debut in June this year with a five book series, titled You’re One! You’re Two! You’re Three! You’re Four! and You’re Five! published by Allen & Unwin, to be swiftly followed by a non fiction picture book, Blast Off! with Penguin Random House in early 2018, and with another book under offer as we speak. She attributes much of her success to the guidance and support of her writers’ group ‘Picture This’, of which she has been a member since 2013 when she began her writing journey.
