We're partnering with the Small Press Network to create a space to meet writers and publishers from the vibrant and diverse independent publishing network. 

There's a program of talks from 11am, when Tim Coronel from SPN will kick things off. Topics include fiction, non-fiction, poetry, a talk by Emmett Stinson about why small presses are currently dominating the literary award lists, and a publishers' Q&A.

Publishers involved include Kids' Own Publishing, Midnight Sun, Wombat Books/Rhiza Press, Spineless Wonders, Wild Dingo, Threekookaburras, White Crane, and Cordite.

A Giant Book Swap will be on the go from 11am, so bring a book or two and swap for a gold-coin donation with all proceeds going to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. The final hour of the Book Swap, you can buy any of the books for a gold coin too. 

WANT TO HELP BY DONATING BOOKS FOR THE BOOK SWAP? DETAILS HERE

In the Consult an Expert corner, you can drop by to ask questions about how to self-publish, or how to get help with editing, how to get your manuscript assessed.
