Morning Morsel: Creative Ways of Making a Living as a Writer

Writers Victoria

Event Date: 16 November 2023 08:00 AM to 16 November 2023 09:00 AM
Author / Presenters: Vanessa Bell
Event Organiser: Writers Victoria

Join Vanessa Bell, our City of Literature Virtual Writer in Residence, for a discussion about best practices for the creation and dissemination of literary work. You’ll hear and talk about new ways of sharing literary work – from social media to residencies, bookshops and libraries – and explore different models of representation – from agents and self-representation to authors’ unions.

Together, we’ll compare working conditions for writers around the world and explore what’s possible when work structures support the practice of writing and provide the mental space necessary for creation. You’ll gain insights into how to represent your writing in a range of different situations, as well as new ways of imagining and possibly creating new models for your writing practice.

Come along to talk or just to listen!

This is free for Writers Victoria members or it's AUD$25 for non-members.

This seminar will take place online. Detailed instructions for participation will be provided.
