Calling all authors, writers, readers and lovers of books! The University of Southern Queensland’s Alumni & Advancement Office recently launched its first-ever writers’ festival - USQ Bookcase – an off-the-page event highlighting the power of the written word.
To be held on Saturday 19 July at the University’s Toowoomba campus, the inaugural event will feature a jam-packed program workshops, book signings, readings, stalls and panel discussions – all free and open to the public.
Not only am I helping organise the event, I’ll also be taking part in a panel discussion on travel writing – See the World; Sell the Story. I’ll be joined by leading food, wine, travel and online expert Christine Salins and award-winning Toowoomba travel photographer and writer Cathy Finch. So if you have ever dreamed of being a travel writer, come feed your wanderlust with us as we discuss our writing careers and what makes good travel writing.
