Varuna, here I come


A visit to Varuna

I am beyond thrilled to have had my middle-grade manuscript chosen by Affirm Press as part of their 2019 Varuna Mentorship Award for 2019.


In just over two weeks I jet off for Sydney, spend a day at the Historical Novel Society of Australia annual conference in Parramatta, then train up the hill to Katoomba.


One week - one manuscript - editors - me … I'm not sure what to expect, but I am looking forward to it all.


Varuna, The Writers' House, was built in 1939 by Eleanor and Eric Dark, and it was given to the public in 1989. The Eleanor Dark Foundation runs its residential program for writers.
