Creative Speaking

This year is shaping up to be incredibly busy with regards to speaking — schools, libraries, bookshops, conventions and even some radio. I’ve already visited St Michael’s PS, Leongatha PS, Hampton Park PS, Mentone Grammar and Embiggen Books, as well as being a guest on two episodes of Southern FM’s Write Now program. Here’s a photo from the Embiggen Books reading…

And there’s lots more to come, including Doveton Library, Mentone Library, the Bayside Literary Festival, A Thousand Words Festival, Continuum 8, Mooroolbark College, Scotch College and a four-day tour of some country primary schools. That’s just the stuff that’s been confirmed. Although I organise some of these things myself, much has also come through my speaking agency Creative Net.

I’ve got to say that joining up with Creative Net has been a great experience. Although they are a relatively new agency, they’ve been getting a lot of work coming through their door lately. So if you’re looking to hire some writers or illustrator to speak at your school, library or function, I can heartily recommend that you contact Creative Net. They have over 80 speakers on their books, and they don’t charge a booking fee. Although they are associated with Ford Street Publishing, they also represent lots of authors from other publishers as well.
