A huge thank you to Peter Taylor and Jenny Stubbs for the information packed Professional Development session at our Write Links meeting at the State Library Queensland on Saturday the 2nd of May.
Peter’s talk on the benefits of attending writers’ festivals and conferences was packed full of helpful, practical advice. Peter shared his tips on how to get the most out of a writers’ conference/festival.
His informative and entertaining presentation will have us remembering what to do, and more importantly, what not to do if we wish to favourably impress an editor or agent.
Jenny spoke enthusiastically about this year’s StoryArts Festival Ipswich. Jenny has been hard at work developing and planning a fantastic program for the festival. She whet our appetites with the diverse and talented range of presenters appearing this year.
With writer and illustrator workshops, appraisals, sessions for children (and the whole family), magic shows, and even drumming lessons, diversity is the word for SAFI 2015. Clear your calendars folks this is an event not to be missed.
With Peter’s advice ringing in our ears and our hearts invigorated by Jenny’s passion we are sure to have a fabulous time.
