EMERGING WRITER

The Emerging Writer

The Emerging Writer

The annual Emerging Writers Festival held in Melbourne, has this year released a book.

The Emerging Writer  is full of helpful hints and tips for budding authors. It is written by writers for writers. The Emerging Writer is an insider’s guide to the craft, philosophy and politics of being a writer. Whether you’re facing your first blank page or negotiating a publishing contract, this book is full of indispensable advice for any emerging writer hoping to turn their seedling of an idea into a mighty tree.

You can buy a rare and exotic hard copy at the festival itself, or otherwise buy an e-book version. It will be money well spent. The story of Thrill Seekers journey to publication and the subsequent marketing, distribution and publicity hurdles that had to be jumped is included!

Would love to get along to the festival myself and visit Melbourne friends while I’m there, but alas, the juggling act of work, motherhood and writing still continues.

  1. Maybe emerging writers have the opportunity to be subversive writers in the way that the ‘emerged’ may not. Perhaps emerging writers could become people highly suspicious of literary meritocracies, and learn to value marginal states, unfinished business. Perhaps it’s not a sin against the natural meritorious order to never emerge. Perhaps the emerged need to learn to go backwards and find the obscurity from which they began. And perhaps a gathering for emerging writers needs to take more from Occupy than it does from the idea of the Writers Festival.

  2. The Emerging Writer is due to launch at The 2013 Emerging Writers Festival .

    I’ve mentioned the Emerging Writers Festival a few times lately, and that’s because it’s a great festival that really attempts to help writers and inspire/teach/motivate them to write. I’ve spent most of this weekend there (when I wasn’t making incoherent tweets about Eurovision) and I’ve been to some terrific panels, met and talked with other writers and generally just hung out to learn and share.
