Melbourne Writers Festival

Hey cHEwY gum gums

I’m back at the Melbourne Writers Festival next week. On the 28th August, I’ll be talking about Super Con-nerd at a Super Nerd session at 10:45am and also joining Gabrielle Williams and Danielle Binks for a discussion about teenage books and social media in hashtags and digital lives. Both sessions are sold out but follow me on Twitter or Instagram for constant updates about both these cool events.

I’m also doing a writing workshop on 29th August too at 10:45am 🙂
