So You Want To Be A Writer?

But you don’t know where to start? Or how to get published? Or what to do next?

Then join internationally published bestselling children’s author Allison Tait, co-host of the top-rating So You Want To Be A Writer podcast, for this exciting fundraising seminar for the Shoalhaven Readers’ & Writers’ Festival.

In two hours, Allison will share the secrets of a 30-year writing career that spans everything from freelance writing and copywriting to writing six published novels (and counting), plus four non-fiction books:

•How to decide what kind of writer you want to be

•How to pitch an article to a publisher

•How to get a novel written

•How to get a book published

And more…

What’s more, she’s invited Walkley-Award winning journalist and non-fiction author Mark Whittaker and bestselling novelist Pamela Cook to come along and share their wisdom too.

If you want to be a writer, don’t miss this very special event.
