Yup, if you’re coming to Brisbane for GenreCon at the end of October (and why wouldn’t you be?) the program is here.
On Saturday 31 October I’ll be running this two-hour workshop:
1:30 PM – 3:30 PM
BEST FOOT FORWARD: EDITING AND POLISHING YOUR SHORT FICTION
Presented by Angela Slatter, QWC Learning Centre
Self-editing can be one of the most challenging aspects for writers at every stage of their career. Best Foot Forward will show you what issues to look for and teach you the techniques of flensing, improving, and polishing up your own work.
On Sunday 1 November I’ll be on this panel:
11:30 AM – 12:30 AM
THE FIVE BOOK THEORY
Chair: Josh Melican; Panelists: Angela Slatter, Keri Arthur, Kim Wilkins
New York Agent Donald Maas has offered the theory that a writer’s career only takes off around the fifth or sixth book. We’ve brought together three authors who have passed that milestone to discuss how their careers have changed.
