Gold Coast Writers Festival Day 1 tomorrow…

Tomorrow is the first day of this fabulous event with a host of authors sharing their experiences through seminars, workshops, and panel sessions. 

Friday at Robina Community Centre publishers will be sharing their wisdom on self publishing and its pitfalls.

There will be a poetry stream with many talented poets showcasing their work. 

Books will be for sale and keynote speakers such as Jan Murray will be at the Literary Luncheon on the Sunday.

Some of the faces to look out for are Andy McDermott from Publicious, Louise Cusack,  Dimity Powell, Angela Sunde, Marion Martineer, Anita Bell, Rowena Cory Daniells, Tony Cavanaugh, Duncan Richardson, Caroline Glenn, Tim Ferguson and me! Just to name a few.

Saturday I’ll be on the Fantasy and Sci-Fi panel with Anita and Rowena 4 pm to 4.45 pm. Then I’ll be heading to the Paint and Prose Wine and Cheese evening from 5 pm to 7 pm. Hubby will join me there to see if my entry is a winner. I’m hoping the artist I collaborated with, Lorraine Blomberg, will be there also.

See you there!


About jillsmith

I am an author of SciFi Books 'Dual Visions' and it's follow up 'Vashla's world' now retitled Book 1 and Book 2 of the Ancient Alien Series, as I've written the third in the series currently titled Travellers. I also write book reviews, articles and short stories. As a member of The Ten Penners, I've written six short stories in a collaborative our anthology for children called Fan-tas-tic-al Tales (released 2009), and nine stories including a novella in Mystery, Mayhem & Magic (released 2017). They are both available in hard copy and on Amazon as ebooks. I blog to showcase my work. My book reviews appear in PIO (Pass It On) and e-Writeabout. I'm a happy Grandmother to two beautiful girls, wife of the ever tolerant Clive, mother of our son Simon. I work part time and lead a busy life.
