Here’s one for the Aussies near (or not so near) Sydney. Master’s Master, Robert Hood, is running a workshop on writing speculative fiction. It’ll be held at the New South Wales Writers’ Centre in Rozelle, in Sydney’s inner-west. It’ll be well worth travelling to, because I know Rob and he’s not only a fantastic writer, but a great bloke. This one day workshop will be well worth your time and money.
