Some exciting news – the Sutherland Shire Writers’ Festival is on again, and I’m lucky enough to be one of the presenters. Called Writers Unleashed, it contains workshops, author talks, book signings and publishing consultations. It’s on at Gymea Tradies on 18 August – so there’s still time to buy a ticket!

My talk is on dealing with publishers, both here in Australia and overseas. I’ll look at how to approach publishers without an agent, and what to do when you’re offered a contract (apart from drink champagne, which goes without saying). What do all those clauses mean? Do you understand what you’re actually agreeing to? My legal background and my years of experience have allowed me to pick up a few tips, which I’m more than happy to share. Hope you can make it!

    Whoo hoo! What a fabulous line up you are nestled among, too Stella. I wish I could be there for your session. Sounds spot on. Now if I can just work out how to operate my tele-transporter…:-P
