The Faber Writing Academy will offer its second writing symposium of the year at the Allen and Unwin Sydney headquarters in November.
The Symposium, which will focus on lifestyle writing, will feature a panel of acclaimed lifestyle writers and thinkers. On the panel will be Sally O'Neil (or the Fit Foodie); Margaret Rice, founder of Good Grief; Karen McCarthy, architect, editor and writer; and the founder of Cornersmith, Alex Elliot-Howery to name a few. The discussion will be moderated by the members of the publishing and marketing team at Murdoch Books and opened by the Publishing Director, Lou Johnson.
The event seeks to provide attendees with frank and authoritive advice on how to progress to becoming a published writer. It will also provide inside information from authors, publishers, editors and marketers on how lifestyle books are developed and how potential writers find their ways into bookshops and excite their readers.
As well as helping attendees understand what it takes to be a lifestyle writer and how to unearth opportunities, the symposium will also include a one-hour networking session to build contacts.
The symposium will take place on Saturday 16 November on the terrace of the Allen and Unwin building in Crows Nest.
