YouTube version of our DWF15 session this morning

“ABC Open: From Page to National Stage – writing for the national broadcaster”

Watch how my ABC Open 500 words projects took me from being a solitary writer to having national (and international) publication of my works.

(My section starts at 20 mins 30 secs)

It’s almost here! #DWF15

At 11am AEDT tomorrow (Saturday) I will be presenting at the Digital Writers Festival, talking about how just 500 words a month took my writing to places I never imagined (one of those places being the DWF itself!)

Anyone can watch the session online by going here and interact via Twitter using #DWF15. Go on! I dare you to ask me a thought-provoking question and watch me squirm!

Join me online on February 14th at the Digital Writers Festival

What are your plans for Valentines Day this year? Will you be sitting at home, bored and uninspired, looking for something to do?

Excellent! Then you might be interested in this.

As a pre-cursor to the Emerging Writers Festival in Melbourne in May/June, there will be a Digital Writers Festival (DWF) in February. Many of the sessions are FREE and you can attend simply by switching on your computer at home.

At 11am on Saturday 14th February, I will be presenting at the DWF as part of the ABC Open session. We’ll be showcasing all the cool things ABC Open does to support the community to get creative online. I’ll no doubt talk about my 20 short 500-word pieces and how when put together they became My Accidental Memoir. And our session is FREE to attend.

I’ll let you know closer to the date how you can join us and the other sessions happening around that time.

And now you can say you have plans for Valentines Day!
