Hello Darling Readers!
So the cat is now officially out of the bag and I can share the happy news that I'm going to be a Digital Reporter at the 2013 Melbourne Writers Festival!
Yay! *Happy Dance*
This was made possible by both the Emerging Writers Festival and MWF, and I owe them both many, many thanks!
I had such a fantastic time at last year's Festival, and I can't believe that this year I get an all-access pass and the chance to interview some of the extraordinary talent they've bought out for the 2013 Festival.
As many of you know, I'm a big supporter & lover of Children's and Young Adult fiction - and it should surprise none of you that I presented myself for this gig with the intention of shining a spotlight on the wonderful School's Program.
I'm going to have an introductory blog up on the MWF website in the next few weeks, where I'll be sharing my Festival picks and just generally gushing about how fabulous the School's Day is (for young and old!).
But I will be busy throughout the month of August, so don't be surprised if there's some tumbleweeds blowing through this blog, while I (temporarily) frolic over at the Festival.
