For those of you champing at the bit to get close and personal with our professional panels here is a second announcement of guests planned for this year.Michael Campbell.
A full schedule with dates, times and topics will be released in the coming weeks.
We can also welcome Riley Kathryn Ellis a YA Fiction scout for Fox Films US, our beloved YA author and all round nice guy Nick Earls, crime queen Gabrielle Lord, journalist & humorist Phil Brown, fantasy author Jason Nahrung, former ABC staffer & novelist Sarah Armstrong, ASA chief Jeremy Fisher and Brisbane Writer’s Festival Director
Probably THE most popular query here at AWM and I suspect most writers resource centres is how one gets around the tricky barrier of “No unsolicited manuscripts’. To that end we are delighted to announce the first event of 2007 program, “How to get solicited”.
Literary agent Tara Wynne (Curtis Brown, Australia) and publisher Louise Thurtell (Allen & Unwin) will be speaking with AWM Online members about the behind-the-scenes dealings in soliciting manuscripts. Their panel will be held on Wednesday 7 Feb at 12 noon.
Don’t forget to log in on time for what we are sure will be a most informative and useful discussion for many of the working and emerging writers out there.
Please note only subscribers can access the forums so if you have not yet joined AWM Online, subscriptions start at only $19.95 for 3 months.
