Bringing our diverse local writing communities together to celebrate the creative talent of south-western Victoria

This wonderful group of 2022 publishing fiction authors will share their creative pathways to publication, offering insight and suggestions into the many different ways that authors can reach the stage of publication. Led by Facilitator Abigayle Carmody, a writer with over twenty years’ experience, our local authors will share aspects of their writing life and what inspires them, what keeps them going, the challenges they face and how they tackle them.
