Attention all aspiring authors

If you’re looking for inspiration to get your next best-seller off the ground, or simply enjoy creative writing, join a conversation with acclaimed author Annette Marfording, next Tuesday 18 October at Taree library.

An avid reader, a published author for the past 25 years, and a lover of Australian literature, Annette Marfording provides deep insight into the world of writing in her latest book, Celebrating Australian Writing: Conversations with Australian Authors.  Through her interviews with authors across a breadth of literary fields, ranging from crime writing, commercial fiction, narrative and poetry, Annette uncovers a host of different writing methods, themes, motivations and central tips that offer an important glimpse into becoming a literary success.

“This is a great opportunity to hear first-hand from Annette, an accomplished author in her own right, the success secrets of some of Australia’s best contemporary writers”, explains Danielle Old, Events Co-ordinator, Taree library.  “Through carefully crafted interviews with 21 different authors that include David Malouf, Di Morrissey and the late Bryce Courtenay, she has a wealth of information and advice for anyone who enjoys writing and wants to improve their technique”, she adds.
