Emerging Writers Festival 2014


EWF 2014

I’m excited to let you know that in just a few short weeks, I’ll be speaking on a panel about food writing as part of Emerging Writers Festival, alongside my friends and great food writers Lauren, Adrian and Kylie.

We’ll be cozied up atย Kinfolkย cafe, talking all things tastes, flavors and storytelling on 28 May.

Tickets are $15 and include not just great food conversation but coffee and cake at one of Melbourne’s most beloved social enterprises.

You can book tickets here – I’d love to see you there!

    Wahhhhh Kinfolk is SO close to where I am seriously wish I could make it but it’s Mum’s last few days in Melbourne so think it’s best to spend time with her before she heads back. I’m so glad they chose you guys to be on the panel, am sure you guys have got so much inspiring nuggets of wisdom to share. Have fun!

      Rest? What’s that?

        Rest. A four-letter word, especially to bloggers. I have to say, most of the bloggers I know are the busiest people in my life, yet they manage to get so much done! I know someone who is unemployed and she can’t manage to respond to email! ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, regardless, I hope you get some after the festival! xo

          Blogging does take up a lot of time – but it’s great time ๐Ÿ™‚ I balance this ‘job’ with full-time work at Melbourne Writers Festival, which is getting busier by the day. Might explain some of the small moments of silence around here…

    That’s really exciting. I really wish I can be there. I can use some advice on food writing. Wish you all the best.

    I’d love to be there! It hurts my heart in the hurting-heart place that I’m on the wrong side of the world.
