Hello Darling Readers!
Just popping in during my January blog-break to say that I'm very excited to be hosting a Writers Victoria 'Writers on Wednesdays' session on January 27, all about 'Reading for Writers' (ummmm, yes, I might know a thing or two about this topic).
If this sounds like something you'd been keen to partake in, I'd love for you to come along!
The pertinent details of the session:
- Date: Wednesday 27 January 2016 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm
- Where: Wheeler Centre, 176 Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne
- Cost: $35 (member) $30 (concession member) $50 (non-member)
- Rating: All
You will learn:
- How writers can take positives from two maligned but successful readerships: romance and youth literature
- About the dangers of only reading within your own genre, and how to avoid pale imitations
- How to harness the power of purposeful reading
- How to make a career out of reading through reviewing books and freelance writing
- About readerships, community and the social side to reading in the digital age
