Every writer has to find their own way to emerge – there is no set route, no absolute path and no road that must be followed. But there is a lot we can learn from those who have travelled before us: how to get there more directly, how to bypass the road blocks, traverse the peaks and valleys, or which is the most scenic route.

The Emerging Writer is an insider’s guide full of valuable advice from fellow travellers – a resource you can keep within arm’s length, for when you need to consult that map again to help you find your way.

Inside you will find information on:

How to create publication opportunities
Understanding your value and getting paid
Why you shouldn’t write what you know
Managing your digital domain
… And much more!

Why am I blogging about this? Two reasons, the first of which should be blindingly freaking obvious – this is a brilliant book, full of excellent information for writers, both emerging and otherwise. The other reason is because I’m one of the contributors. See that bit above about Managing your digital domain? I wrote that bit. Look who else is in this book:

Contributors include: Esther Anatolitis, Karen Andrews, Van Badham, Alan Baxter, Alan Bissett, Sophie Black, Matt Blackwood, Jen Breach, Stephanie Convery, Sam Cooney, Christopher Currie, Christy Dena, Jacqui Dent, Leah Gerber, Keri Glastonbury, Tully Hansen, Rebecca Harkins-Cross, Douglas Holgate, Kirstin Innes, Tait Ischia, Johannes Jakob, Tiggy Johnson, Rachael Kendrick, Sophie Langley, James Le, Geoff Lemon, Lawrence Leung, Julien Leyre, Andrew Marlton, Hugh McGuire, Ryan Paine, Amra Pajalic, Maria Papas, Liam Pieper, Bhakthi Puvanenthiran, Aden Rolfe, Benjamin Solah, Rosanna Stevens, John Weldon.

The print version of The Emerging Writer is on sale exclusively at the Emerging Writers’ Festival, so get along to a festival event and snap up a copy before they sell out. As a special offer, the first 100 copies of the book sold at EWF will include an exclusive ticket to the glamorous launch party at the National Gallery of Victoria! An ebook version will also be available to purchase – visit www.emergingwritersfestival.org.au/book for links to the online retailers.

Don’t miss out on this. The Emerging Writers Festival is a brilliant event, for writers at all stages in their careers. I’m honoured to be presenting there again this year, on Saturday 26th in the Town Hall. Get along, learn lots, meet people and grab your copy of The Emerging Writer. If you can’t get to the festival, grab an e-copy of the book anyway.
