Join us to celebrate the launch of the Emerging Writers’ Festival book, The Emerging Writer, the insiders’ guide to growing your writing. Contributors include John Birmingham, Alice Pung, Shaun Tan, Charlotte Wood, among many others, covering handy hints on a diverse range of genres – novels, memoir, playwriting – and topics – writing for digital publications, competitions and pure pleasure.
The Emerging Writer prides itself on featuring contributions from writers of a wide range of backgrounds. ROSS ONLEY-ZERKEL, Co-ordinator of Deaf Arts Network, will launch the book, sharing his experiences as a Deaf writer, as AUSLAN
interpreters translate his amazing storytelling and views on writing.
