writers' week 2013
I was very happy to be able to attend some of Adelaide Writers' Week again this year. Held outdoors in some of Adelaide's beautiful park-lands, it's free! to attend & lots of fun. Although I have to say this year's weather wasn't quite as wonderful as last year.
Anyway, we managed to attend talks on two different days & listened to some authors we already loved, as well as discovering some new (to us) ones. Kathryn & I also waited in two really long lines to get books signed.
Isobelle Carmody & Kerry Greenwood have been favourites of mine for a long time & they were very worth listening to (Kerry's talk was hilarious). I also really enjoyed hearing Justine Larbalestier & Vikki Wakefield (on a panel with Isobelle), Karen Lord (although I missed part of her talk due to one of the aforementioned lines), Scott Westerfeld & Toni Jordan. It was also nice to see Sean Willams again (talking with Scott Westerfeld), as his talk with Garth Nix was one of my favourites last year.
