The Ballarat Writers Festival is coming up on the 2nd-3rd September. As far as writers/readers festivals go, this one is pretty unique. It’s a regional festival for emerging and aspiring writers of children’s and YA books, and there will be a wide range authors. illustrators and publishing professionals speaking. Including myself. Which is why I’m telling you about it!
Maureen McCarthy will be speaking at the festival dinner on the Friday night, then there will be a full program on the Saturday. Click on the link above to download the program, see who will be attending, and to buy tickets.
As luck would have it, the Ballarat International Photo Biennale is also across that weekend, giving you even more reason to hop on the V-line to the `Rat.
