I have been selected unanimously as the inaugural Regional Emerging Writer in Residence for the Newcastle Writers Festival 2016. Commencing Tuesday 22 March, I will spend two weeks living and working in Newcastle’s renowned contemporary arts space, The Lock-Up, working on my debut novel, an outback gothic adventure with the working title This landscape of failure. It is my first visit to Newcastle, so I am eager to write lots, and explore the city and surrounds.
Come along to my only session at the Newcastle Writers Festival on Saturday 2 April at 1:30pm: On the Fringe – Life as a writer in Regional Australia. It’s free!
