Byron Bay Writers Festival Round Up #1

The Byron Bay Writers Festival is over for another year and, as is usually the case for me, what with small kids and a full time job Byron is just too far away to put in an appearance.

Fortunately, Jane over at Speakeasy (the blog of The Australian Writers Marketplace) has been and has produced a series of detailed reports about the panels she attended. She tells us all about the panel for Researching for Fiction that was given by Garry Disher, Richard Flanagan, Gabrielle Lord and Carrie Tiffany. She also attended the How to Create a Kick-Ass Character panel that was chaired by James Phelan and included Gabrielle Lord and Michael Robotham.

Head on over to Speakeasy to get all the good oil.
