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.
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.
