Anyway, I got a chastising phone call from Bernice this morning. Apparently she'd googled the Two Fires Festival and discovered in the process that I was one of the featured speakers. Um, yes, sorry, was all I could say.
I haven't told many people, because I always feel that if I mention these things too early, they end up not happening and then I feel a bit embarrassed. But now I'm on the website and everything, so I guess I can blurt to my heart's content.
Yes! I'm speaking on a literary panel at the Two Fires Festival in Braidwood, NSW, on the weekend of 27-29 March 09. My fellow panellists will be Alice Gage of Ampersand Magazine, Rob Riel of Picaro Press and Stephen Mathews of Ginninderra Press! How excitement! What company! The blurb says
This delightful foursome will discuss the pitfalls of small publishing and of course how much they love what they do.
Goodie! What can I say? No money, lots of love. I guess we'll all be saying the same thing, so I'll have to think about some witty extra bits.
There seems to be lots of other good things happening at the Festival, so if you're geographically able, or so inclined, please join us for what looks like a Fun Time. As long as the fire season is over. Braidwood has had its share of fire proximity this year so far.
