Hey, I’m going to be appearing in two Emerging Writers’ Festival events this week. I’m insanely happy that it’s EWF time – one of my favourite times of year – and I’m very sad that it’s outgoing festival director Lisa Dempster’s last year. Lisa has brought an incredible amount of energy and unparalleled digital smarts to the enterprise, and I’m pretty excited to see what she does next.

But anyway, come see me in:

Get Money, Get Paid!

6:00 PM, Thursday 31 May 2012
Rue Bebelons
267 Little Lonsdale Street (Gmaps)

Writers can – and do! – get paid. But not always. And not always the same amount as their peers. Why? Pay rates vary across the industry and different kinds of writing – and writers – are valued in different ways. Our panellists discuss the inequities of the industry and how writers can educate themselves to get money, get paid.

With Elmo Keep, Bede Payne and Andrew Crook

The Pitch

2:00 PM, Saturday 2 June 2012
The Wheeler Centre
176 Little Lonsdale Street (Gmaps)

How to pitch & who to pitch it to.

The Pitch has been one of our most successful events over the past three years… and this year it’s going to be bigger and better than ever!

Featuring an expert panel of editors and publishers to give you no-holds-barred tips and advice about how to successfully present your work.

We’re also shining a spotlight on creative writing journals, where many writers jump-start their literary careers.

With time for Q&A, this is one mega pitching session you don’t want to miss.

With … everyone (seriously, it’s big)
